Philippine security forces have arrested a 36-year-old Filipino woman suspected of recruiting, via social media, fighters from around the world for the ultra-radical Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

Karen Aizha Hamidon was arrested in Taguig city, an hour east of the capital Manila, on Oct 11, Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre announced at a news conference on Wednesday (Oct 18).

...According to a recent report by the Jakarta-based Institute for Policy Analysis of Conflict (IPAC), Hamidon had been dismissed by many in ISIS-inspired chat groups as a spy.

IPAC said she started appearing on Indonesian Telegram groups in August 2015 and aggressively advertised her various accounts on Facebook, Twitter and WhatsApp to ISIS sympathisers around the world.

One of the Telegram groups she took part in was BUG, or Baqiyah United Group, created by an Indonesian woman, Aisyah Lina, whose husband was later arrested for terrorism. Lina then added Hamidon and Sirajuddin.

Around October 2015, Sirajuddin began claiming that Hamidon’s groups had been infiltrated by Indian police, and that she herself was a spy. A month later, another message appeared in Indonesia posted from the Philippines accusing Hamidon of gathering information via her online groups which led to the arrest of several militants.

Hamidon was also accused of sowing discord among ISIS sympathisers by disparaging foreign extremists operating in the Philippines.

Infiltrated? Nahh! That's crazy talk.
