Indonesian anti-terrorism officials yesterday said that recently arrested suspects wanted to attack the Singapore embassy in Jakarta, targeting Singaporeans leaving the compound.

The 11 suspects, thought to be members of a terror cell led by known radical Abu Umar alias Zulfikar, 41, were nabbed two weeks ago around Java.

Ammunition and weapons including pistols, rifles, silencers and at least one sub-machine gun were found with them.

Brig. Gen. Petrus Golose, a deputy at the National Anti-Terror Agency (BNPT), said: 'They (said they) would pick Singaporeans coming out of the compound. They would not attack Indonesians.' He told The Straits Times by telephone that the men also wanted to attack Indonesian police officers. But his agency did not know when the attacks were meant to happen.

Interviewed yesterday, BNPT chief Ansyaad Mbai stressed that the embassy attack plan had not been crystallized.

'We did not find any proof of surveys or maps. It was just a threat,' he said, adding that embassies had always been conventional terrorist targets.

Brig. Gen. Petrus revealed that the Singapore embassy - in Jakarta's Mega Kuningan business area, close to other foreign missions and the city centre - was the only diplomatic target cited by the suspects.
