Malaysia: Puzzled by French Travel Warning, How Many Malaysian Have Joined IS Fighters?

According to, the French government has reportedly issued a travel warning for Algeria, but seemingly it is puzzling that Malaysia has also been included in the warning?

COMMENT: Unless it can be established that a large number of Malaysian citizens have joined IS (Islamic State) fighters in the Middle East, the travel warning appears to be a bit premature if not tantamount to being a bit paranoid.

Even if some Malaysians have chosen to fight for IS, it seems unreasonable to conclude that Australia, Germany, the UK, the US and scores of other nations are being penalized simply because some of their citizens have chosen to fight for IS in the Middle East?
