• Indonesia militant makes new call to kill police


    DUBAI: Indonesia’s most wanted Islamist militant, Santoso, has issued a new call for attacks on anti-terror police, whom he accused of being Australian and US agents, a monitoring group said on Tuesday. Santoso, also known as Abu Wardah, who heads a group called the East Indonesia Mujahedeen from the mountains of Central Sulawesi, urged followers to show no mercy against elite counter-terror unit Detachment 88, the US-based SITE Intelligence Group said. “They are invaders of this country, and they want to apostatize the Islamic Ummah,” it quoted him as saying in a 20-minute video published on jihadist forums. Detachment 88 was established after the Bali bombings on Bali that killed 202 people in 2002, mostly Western tourists.
