The man was among 11 other foreign fighters who were killed amidst carrying out terror-related activities. There are reportedly other foreign fighters in the conflict zone of Marawi as Philippine troops continue to retaliate in regaining control of the city. The conflict has caused more than 400 deaths of civilians, security forces and militants.

ARE WE READY TO HANDLE SECURITY ISSUES IN BIG INTERNATIONAL EVENTS?

In Singapore, are we really ready to tackle such issues? We have been force fed the SG Secure tag everywhere we turn, where the tagline is "Not if but when it happens". This seems apt. Singapore has it's fair shares of big concerts an events, and we will still have these events coming up throughout the year. The F1 race, concerts by Britney Spears and Foo Fighters, the football tournaments at the National Stadium in July. Are our security up to standards? Judging from the past recent concerts we had, maybe security is still a major issue.

An example is the recent Guns N Roses concert. Apparently, the staff from local event organiser LAMC Productions were surprised when security personnel did not check ticket-holders with handheld detectors at recent concerts. In the concert area, they also spotted security staff watching the performers on stage, and not looking out for potential danger signs, suspicious characters or unattended bags in the crowd. And are security staff properly trained to handle security issues? After all, they are not law enforcement officers. Most of them are likely part timers, out to make a quick buck, while also getting an opportunity to catch a show for free. And are there really enough security personnel for big events like this?
