Police: Indonesia's top militant suspect arrested

By Associated Press

POSTED:



JAKARTA, Indonesia » Indonesian police say they have arrested their most-wanted fugitive, a man believed to have an important role in terrorist activity.

Abu Tholut alias Mustofa is one of Indonesia's top wanted suspects after militant figures Noordin M. Top and Dulmatin died at the hands of police last year.

He is accused of helping set up a terror network plotting attacks on foreigners at luxury hotels in Jakarta and several high-profile assassinations, including Indonesia's president.

Investigators confirmed the man arrested Thursday is Abu Tholut on condition of anonymity because they don't have authority to talk to the media.

MetroTV and TVOne reported he was arrested during a police raid at his house in Central Java's Kudus district.
