Najib chairs National Security Council meeting
The two-hour meeting was also attended by Chief Secretary to the Government Tan Sri Dr Ali Hamsa, Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar, Malaysian Armed Forces (MAF) chief General Tan Sri Zulkifeli Md Zin, former IGP Tun Hanif Omar and former MAF chief General (Rtd) Tan Sri Mohamed Hashim Mohd Ali, among others.
On Monday, Najib said in a statement that the meeting was being held to discuss security measures that had been taken as well as latest developments, including the terror attack in Jakarta, Indonesia last week.
He had also urged Malaysians not to speculate or spread false information, which could cause public fear on the security level in the country.
He said the country's security agencies had been instructed to step up efforts to counter possible terrorist threats in following the terror attacks that occurred in some of the world's big cities.
