Indonesian police capture top terrorist

Indonesian police have captured its country's most wanted terrorist Abu Dujana, the head of a military wing of the Jemaah Islamiah terrorist network, among at least three arrested in the weekend raids across central Java, police have now confirmed. A
member of the Indonesian police's Detachment 88 anti-terror team, which was involved in the raid, told AAP that Dujana was caught in one of a series of raids on the weekend.

Detachment 88 is a US-trained counterterrorist unit which has been accused of heavy handed tactics by human rights advocacy groups. The report went on to say that the recent raids followed those in March, when authorities uncovered a huge stash of hundreds of kilograms of explosives, weapons and chemicals.
