Indonesia questions Singapore militant

Indonesian police have started interrogating the man they say heads the Singapore branch of regional militant group Jemaah Islamiah (JI). Mas Slamet Kastari, who was detained on Sunday on the Indonesian island of Bintan, has confirmed his identity and is co-operating, police said. Police said there were no plans to extradite him to Singapore, where he is wanted for alleged terrorist plots, because the two countries have no extradition treaty. Mas Slamet Kastari had been on the run since 2001, when Singaporean police implicated him in a plot to crash an airplane into Changi International airport. Indonesian police said on Tuesday they were investigating links between the Singaporean and the Indonesian arm of JI, which has been accused of being behind last October’s bomb attacks on Bali.
