East Nusa Tenggara Police arrested three people on Monday for their alleged involvement in the Islamic State (IS) movement.

Acting as healers, the three were arrested on July 31 on suspicion of spreading IS teachings to local communities.

They were identified as Zakarias Kiri and a man with initials HI, both from Alor regency, and Syamsudin Uba from Bekasi.

The East Nusa Tenggara Police general crimes director Sam Kawengian said the men were found to be carrying paintings and flags with IS logos when they were arrested.

'€œWe arrested them for public safety reasons,'€ he said as quoted by tempo.co.

Police also found other IS material and a laptop at Zarakias'€™ house.

The men are now undergoing police interrogation. (ika)
