KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA: Police combed a Hindu temple for explosives for more than two hours yesterday after receiving bomb threats, forcing the evacuation of about 150 worshippers. The threat came two days after a powerful explosion rocked a nearby temple on the eve of the Deepavali festival holiday. The cause of that explosion has yet to be determined, but local reports point to the theft of armaments from a military post in northern Malaysia several months ago as possibly related. This would be a very unwelcome development in the country which has worked hard to prevent sectarian violence.
