According to reports in the South China Morning Post, 19 terror suspects linked to ISIS have been arrested in Malaysia the past seven months.

Speaking to the paper Ayub Khan, a senior official for Malaysia’s Special Branch Counter-Terrorism Division, said: “During questioning, they [the suspects] admitted one of their main objectives was to attack the government.”

“They also discussed planning attacks against a disco, pubs in Kuala Lumpur and a Carlsberg factory in Petaling Jaya.”

Sharia law, which is endorsed by the Islamic State formerly known as ISIS, forbids the consumption of alcohol with the emergence of this latest plot raising concerns the drinks industry could be targeted by the terrorist group further.

Last week Indonesia, home to the world’s biggest Muslim nation, banned support for the Islamic State and warned its citizens not to join the group.

Kahn said 20 Malaysian citizens are known to have left for Syria to fight for the Islamic State with at least 56 Indonesians known to have joined its ranks.

A 26-year-old factory worker, Ahmad Tarmimi Maliki, died as a suicide bomber in Iraq in May.

Carlsberg has as yet not commented on the plot.
