One of Indonesia’s most-wanted Islamic militant suspects has been arrested at his home, police say.
Abu Tholut, 49, is suspected of helping to set up a militant training camp in Aceh province, recruiting militants and raising funds for “terror activities”.
He is also suspected of plotting attacks on foreigners in Jakarta and the assassination of political leaders.
Tholut, who has served jail time in the past for explosives offences, was held without a fight in Kudus, Central Java.
“Abu Tholut was deeply involved in terrorist training in Aceh and armed robberies in North Sumatra province,” national police spokesman Boy Rafli Amar told reporters.
Anyway, till Indonesia doesn’t make efforts to fight Jihadist ideology, as some experts have already told, these detentions/arrests are not going to have any effects in the long-term scenario.
