Since my last posting on Lahad Datu last Friday, several more police officers have been ambushed and killed in Sabah by Sulu rebels from the Philippines. Clearly, the intruders are not interested in getting out alive and they will try and take down as many of our men and women in the fighting that will ensue, or which may even be taking place even as I write this.
As of this morning, both our Home and Defence ministers have landed in Lahad Datu to give support to their (our) men and women. If you, like me, are in KL, we are about 1,900km from there. There's very little we can do but pray for the safety of all Malaysians who are there because it is where they live and work, or because of the call of duty. Let's stand united behind them against a common enemy.
p.s I will try and update this blog or/and my twitter @xrockybrux as and when I get official information from ground zero.
