Malaysia revives detention without trial with new law

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia: Malaysia has revived detention without trial after its lower house passed an anti-terror law that rights groups say is a giant step backward for human rights. The government says the measures were needed after it arrested 92 Malaysians so far this year suspected of supporting the Islamic State militant group. This includes 17 people detained Sunday, whom police say were planning to rob banks and attack police stations and army camps to obtain weapons.
