In the first incident, the ground floor of the three-storey Metro Tabernacle Church in Desa Melawati here was damaged.

Two similar attacks — on the Assumption Church in Jalan Templer and the Life Chapel Church in Section 17, Petaling Jaya — a few hours later were unsuccessful.

Musa said the modus operandi in the attacks were different, which could point to different attackers.
