Two police officers were killed and another was injured in an attack by an armed individual at a police station in Malaysia's Johor state on early May 17 morning, Malaysian authorities announced.

The suspect was shot dead on the scene by security forces.

According to Inspector General of Police Razarudin Husain, the suspect is alleged to be part of the hardline Jemaah Islamiyah (JI) group.

Police raided the suspect’s house in Ulu Tiram district of Johor state and arrested five members of his family.

Razarudin Husain said he instructed the special unit to identify and hunt down JI members in the state, estimated at more than 20 subjects. He also ordered tight security around police stations.

IJ is an al-Qaeda-affiliated group in Indonesia. The group was the perpetrator of bombings in Bali in 2002, leaving more than 200 people dead./.
