Senior Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob revealed today that the 6th Enhanced Movement Control Order (EMCO) has been declared at Pusat Bandar Utara in Kuala Lumpur.

The 14-day order beginning today also affects the residential areas surrounding the Selayang wholesale market, which Ismail Sabri said mostly involved Rohingya refugees.
