Indonesia arrests a “most-wanted”
Indonesia's anti-terrorism squad has arrested one of the country's most wanted Muslim militants for allegedly plotting suicide attacks.
Local police chief Lieutenant Colonel Lufti Martadian said on Sunday that Beni Asri was captured without a fight on Friday near his parents' house in Solok of West Sumatra province.
He says that Asri was flown to Jakarta hours after he was arrested for allegedly helping plot a suicide bombing in a church in the Central Java town of Solo on Sept 25 that injured 22 worshippers.
The 26-year-old was one of five men wanted for allegedly plotting an April suicide bombing that injured 30 police officers praying in a mosque in the West Java town of Cirebon.
