Indonesia: April 26, 2005


  Police discovered an Islamic group had sponsored several weeks of military type training for two dozen men at a resort hotel on Java. An investigation is underway to determine if there is a terrorism connection, or just training for bodyguards or private militia. The group paying for the training, the Indonesian Mujahadeen Council (MMI), is led by Abu Bakar Baasir, who was recently convicted of involvement in terrorist attacks in 2002 and 2003.
