Turkish authorities have detained two Malaysian nationals on their way to Syria, where they were planning to join up with the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) terrorist group.

Malaysian authorities said in a statement on Friday that the two suspects, a factory technician and a welder, had been recruited by Muhammad Wanndy Muhammad Jedi, a known Malaysian ISIL member in Syria.

Muhammad Wanndy had claimed responsibility for a grenade attack on the outskirts of Kuala Lumpur in June and issued death threats against top Malaysian police and government officials.
