Malaysian police have so far arrested two suspects in the explosion that left eight injured at the Movida bar in the town of Pouching, where a crowd had gathered to watch a Euro 2016 football match. PoliceInspector-General Khalid Abu Bakar said that the detained men had received instructions from ISIS in Syria.
According to a Facebook post claiming responsibility for the attack by a man pledging allegiance to ISIS, the attack was an act of revenge on people participating in social activities during Ramadan. It is one of several acts of violence in the last month that have plagued cities worldwide during the Muslim holy month.
