KUCHING, Feb 23 (Bernama) -- Sarawak Police Commissioner Datuk Zulkipli Mat Noor today advised Malaysians not to visit central Kalimantan in the wake of clashes between local Dayaks and immigrant Madurese.
Communal violence involving the two groups has reportedly spilled over to areas known to be frequented by Malaysians such as Sampit, Pangkalan Bun, Kuala Kuayan and Samud.
"We are also advising Malaysians in Sampit town not to venture to scene of the clashes for their own safety," Zulkipli told Bernama.
Sampit is about eight hours by road from Pontianak, the provincial capital of West Kalimantan where Malaysia has a consulate.
