2 held for trying to join IS in Syria
Singapore has detained two men under its tough internal security law after discovering they intended to travel to Syria to fight for the Islamic State group. Rosli Hamzah, 50, and Mohamed Omar Mahadi, 33, are being held under the Internal Security Act, which allows for detention without trial, the Ministry of Home Affairs said. Mr Rosli worked as a car washer. Mr Omar, a waste truck driver, had made preparations with his wife and children to travel to Syria to join the IS.
