Channel NewsAsia (CNA) had published a report titled ‘Singapore detains 1st radicalised female citizen’ about an hour ago. The report has now been removed from its website.


A cached copy of the report however is still available in Google search.

According to the cached copy, the detained female is a 22 year-old preschool teacher who had been posting pro-ISIS materials online since 2014 and was also looking for a terror supporter in Syria to marry.

The report named the preschool teacher and said that she is an infant “educarer” with the PCF (PAP Community Foundation) Sparkletots preschool programme. She was on contract employment with the preschool before her detention in June this year.

As at 2.30pm today, the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) has not published any press release of the detention under the Internal Security Act in its website.

UPDATE: The MHA has since confirmed the detention of Izzah in its website.
