Police show the articles obtained after arresting an Indonesian suspect yesterday who was suspected of supporting the Al Nusra Front, an Islamic State terrorist group.

The National Intelligence Service (NIS) has deported 48 foreigners in the past five years with suspected terrorist ties according to a brief yesterday afternoon to the National Intelligence Committee.

According to the Joongang Ilbo, one of the deported foreigners was a member of Hezbollah who made frequent trips to Korea posing to work for a fertilizer company to purchase ammonium nitrate to smuggle into a third country, and another Indonesian factory worker who joined ISIS after working in Korea and supposedly died in February.

Yesterday, an Indonesion factory worker was arrested in South Chungcheong Province with a hunting knife, a mock M-16 rifle and several Islamic fundamentalist books and promoting the Al Nusra Front, an Islamic State terrorist group.

The NIS also claimed there are 10 Koreans who openly support ISIS on the Internet but are not able to trace them.

The government has raised the terrorism alert level to “caution”, the second highest threat level in the four-tier system.
