Indonesia: October 1, 2004


Police have arrested sixteen people for involvement in the September suicide bombing outside the Australian embassy. Some of the suspects were apparently involved in 2002 and 2003 bombings. There have been few terrorist attacks (one or two a year) in Indonesia, although there is a lot of talk among Islamic conservatives.  For example, the suicide bomber in the September attack was identified via DNA analysis, and turned out to be a member of an Islamic conservative organization that was under the influence of Malaysian Islamic radical Azahari bin Husin and Noordin Mohamed Top.
