Key Bali bomb suspect captured

One of the main suspects in last October’s Bali bombings in Indonesia has been arrested, a senior official has said. The man, called Idris, was captured during a three-day police operation which started on 12 June in the north Sumatran capital of Medan. The announcement came as prosecutors demanded the death penalty for another of the bombing suspects – Amrozi bin Nurhasyim – usually referred to as Amrozi. The 40-year-old mechanic has admitted plotting, organising and carrying out the terror attack. More than 30 suspects have been arrested in connection with the 12 October attack on two nightclubs in Bali. Indonesia has blamed the attacks on the regional Islamic group Jemaah Islamiah. National detective chief Erwin Mappaseng told reporters that Idris was one of five men who masterminded the nightclub bombings, in which 202 people died. No immediate reason was given for the delay in announcing his arrest. Full Story
