Top Terrorist Arrested in Indonesia

Earlier this week we announced the capture of Abu Dujana, the top military leader of Jemaah Islamiyah. Today it was announced that the head of Southeast Asia's al Qaeda affiliate organization was also arrested. He is known simply as Zarkasih.


Indonesian police said Friday that one of a group of suspected terrorists seized in a raid is the head of Jemaah Islamiyah -- the al-Qaeda-linked terror network blamed for attacks including the deadly Bali bombings.

Known simply as Zarkasih, the alleged leader of the Southeast Asian terror groupwas apprehended at the same time as its confessed military leader, Abu Dujana, whose arrest was announced on Tuesday, Brig. Gen. Surya Dharma said .

I've got to say that the news coming out of Indonesia has been pretty good lately.
