“As soon as police arrived at the house, armed men suspected to be IPOB members descended on the police, set ablaze one patrol vehicle and attacked them with rifles and machetes.
As a result of the attack, two police officers were killed by the suspected IPOB members while others were inflicted with machete cuts,” the Police Public Relations Officer said.
