Indonesian police arrest another key suspect over Palopo blast

Indonesian police have arrested a key suspect wanted over a cafe bomb attack which killed four people in Palopo, South Sulawesi province earlier this month, a police officer said. Jasmin alias Yamming was arrested during a raid on a house outside of Palopo early on Sunday, Luwu district police deputy chief Wisnu Widarto told AFP. “He was arrested following our interrogation of another man who was detained for questioning on the previous evening. Jasmin is now under intensive questioning at the district police headquarters,” Widarto said. Jasmin, together with another man still on the run, is believed to have placed the bomb in the cafe. Both men left the cafe about 10 minutes before the blast, Widarto said. His protrait, showing a thin man with buck teeth, had been one of the two dummy sketches release by the police in their investigation of the bombing case. Widarto said that Jasmin is believed to be an associate of Agung Abdul Hamid, the mastermind of the December 5, 2002 bombings by Islamic militants in the city of Makassar which left three dead.
