Lahad Datu: 33 foreigners detained under Ops Daulat in Semporna
SEMPORNA: Forty-four people were detained, of which 11 were released later, in mopping up operations at Kampong Bakau on Sunday.
OCPD DSP Mohd Firdaus Francis Abdullah said the 11 were released immediately because they were locals, had MyKads and not connected to the Sulu armed intruders.
“The 33 being detained are foreigners. We have not determined if they have anything to do with Op Daulat at all.
“They are just being detained in Semporna for questioning,” he said.
