JI member Mas Selamat Kastari escaped. Singapore in full ALERT

If you see this man, call POLICE immediately.


Latest news since 2.00pm


Since yesterday, security in Whitley and surroundings had been tight due to the escape of Jemaah Islamiyah (JI) member Mas Selamat Kastari. He has been described by International terrorism expert Rohan Gunaratna, as 'the most ruthless of the Singapore JI members'. He was arrested and placed in Detention for terrorist plans to hijack a plane from Bangkok and crash it into Changi.

It was reported that he escaped when he asked to answer the call of nature. He had just been transported from his cell to another part of the detention centre during a visit from his family members.

A close friend of mine who has a daughter that goes to a school nearby says the situation at the school is under control but parents are whisking their kids away from school immediately the end of school lessons today. It is the first time one can see so many policeman patrolling the streets of Singapore.

Security had been tightened to all parts of Singapore and exit points of all checkpoints. The jam at the causeway had been increased last evening as security had been stepped up.

Yes, I saw loads of policemen outside the school. My daughter actually freaked out at the sight, so scared that she couldnt eat her lunch, after I told her what it was all about.

Till now, no news of his capture yet.. it is worrying actually cos what if he might be hiding in the thick hills in Bukit Timah Nature Reserve? My friends who jogged there have stopped after the news yesterday. They prefer to jog along the roadsides now...
