Umar Patek, 40, who has a US bounty of $1 million on his head and is Indonesia‘s most wanted fugitive, was arrested by Pakistani security agencies who have said they are investigating him for links to militant groups in Pakistan.

A Pakistani official said: “Right now he is being interrogated. The Indonesians want access to him and they are coming.”

Kevin Rudd, Australian Foreign Minister, said: “For us it is clear that Patek has been arrested. Furthermore, it is our view that Patek’s arrest is potentially a major step forward in the fight against terrorism.

His arrest might offer some small comfort to the nearly 100 Australian families who lost loved ones in the Bali bombings way back in 2002. Of course, his arrest does not bring anyone back.”

      Hello: I think Pakistan is really very interesting regarding terrorism matters, but Saudi Arabia, Somalia and possibly North Sudan, have the “honour” to be also “epicenters of worldwide terrorism“. Of course, Pakistan has something that the rest don’t: nuclear bombs.

      I really can’t understand why there is no condemnation of these countries in the UN.
