The 14-year-old female student, who was arrested for allegedly trying to join the Islamic State (IS) terror group in Syria, is believed to have been influenced by her would-be husband.

The girl was arrested by the Bukit Aman Special Branch Counter Terrorism Division before she could board a Cairo-bound flight at the KL International Airport at about 7.30pm on Tuesday.

Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar, when contacted, confirmed that the Malaysian IS member had coaxed the girl to join the group on the pretext of marrying her.

Investigations revealed that the man, who is studying in Egypt, had provided the money for the girl’s flight ticket to Syria.

“We believe the man (mastermind) had arranged for the flight ticket and expenses for the girl to fly to Syria.

“Her story that she wanted to marry the man could have been made up,” he said.

Khalid said the police were trying to ascertain whether any of the girl’s friends had been influenced to join the militant group in Syria.

It is believed that the girl, who is from Muar and was studying at a religious school in Shah Alam, had planned to marry the man before going to Syria to join the IS. – BERNAMA -STAR ONLINE

#THAILAND # crash of the #Bell #212 #helicopter #killed #nine #Army #officers #yesterday in #Phayao

The crash of the Bell 212 helicopter that killed nine Army officers yesterday in Phayao province has raised widespread concern in the social network of whether this model of rotorcraft is still safe as one of the victims posted a message on his Facebook just before airborne saying the aircraft was old.
Sergeant Master (first class) Anant Chomchiengkam posted on his Facebook at 7.00 am before joining the team of the deputy commander of the Third Army Region Maj Songpol Thongjin to visit troops at various bases in Phayao and Chiang Rai on Monday.

His message reads “it’s time now to challenge the sky…the cold wind again… old copter.. new pilot…. weather closes…hell door opens….”

He also wrote he was very glad that the deputy commander of the Third Army offered him a hand shake before boarding the aircraft to begin the visit.

The officer was among the nine killed in the fatal crash.

A villager who witnessed the crash yesterday said he heard unusual sound like the copter was choking and then spinning and hitting a tree before crashing into the field.

Bell 212 helicopter had earlier crashed in Kaeng Kracharn national park in Phetburi province on July 24, 2011 killing three senior army officers.

Malfunctioning of the tail rotor was found to be the cause of the crash.

The Army has commissioned the Bell 212 helicopter in services for search and rescue operations with the installation of the lifting slings. It now has about 40 Bell 212 helicopters in use at all army bases across the country.

Meanwhile the Army has set up a committee to investigate the cause.

All the bodies of the officers were contained in coffins covered with national flags and carried in a convoy of army vehicles at noon today from Phayao back to the Third Army headquarters in Phitsanulok for religious ceremony.

The convoy is expected to arrive at Kuhasawan temple this evening where royal cremation ceremony will be held as an honour for the nine officers.

Religious ceremonies will be from today until November 25 when funeral will be held at 4.00 pm at Wat Kuhasawan.

The IEAT Governor added that SEZ is not only to be developed in border areas but will also include those huge communities which have a bearing on the country’s economic development

#THAILAND #Five #border #areas to be #developed as #special #economic #zones

BANGKOK, July 19 — In an attempt to improve the livelihood of people living along the border and promote border trade, a committee has agreed to develop five border areas as special economic zones, said leader of the National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) and army chief Gen Prayuth Chan-ocha.

Gen Prayuth said during his weekly TV address late Friday that the Policy Committee on Special Economic Zone Development on Tuesday has acknowledged progress of the National Economic and Social Development Board (NESDB)’s study on strategies for special economic zone development at 12 border areas nationwide.

PRAYUTH
The meeting has agreed on the 5 potential border areas to be developed as Thailand’s first special economic zones, which were Mae Sot, Aranyaprathet, Trat, Mukdahan and Sadao (Sadao-Padang Besar Customs Checkpoints).

This was to prepare for the realization of the ASEAN Economic Community in 2015.

The development of special economic zones would emphasize achievement of development goals, both from an economic and security perspective, competitiveness enhancement, increasing employment and people’s well-being, halting of illegal migrant workers entering the country, prevention of illegal agricultural products smuggling from the neighboring countries, and decrease of congestion at border checkpoints.

In addition, the meeting approved criteria and measures for the establishment of special economic zones, including investment privileges, one-stop service centres, measures on migrant worker employment, and development of infrastructure and customs checkpoints in the potential areas to support activities related to special economic zones and enhance efficiency of regional connectivity.

On tourism promotion, Gen Prayuth said the NCPO has decided to waive visa fee for Chinese tourists wishing to visit Thailand for three months as part of the 40th anniversary celebrations of diplomatic relations between the two countries. (MCOT )
