Indonesian suspect captured in Pakistan: officials
JAKARTA: Top Indonesian terror suspect Umar Patek, wanted in the deadly 2002 Bali bombings, has been arrested in Pakistan, intelligence sources said Tuesday.
Patek, a suspected member of the al-Qaida linked militant group Jemaah Islamiyah, is believed to have served as the assistant for the field coordinator of the nightclub bombings that left 202 people dead, many of them foreigners.
The US, which lost seven citizens in the attack, was offering a $1 million reward for his arrest.
Two officials speaking on condition that they not be named said Tuesday that Patek was taken into custody in Pakistan earlier this year.
One of the sources is an Indonesian security official and the other a Philippine intelligence official who cited information from US counterparts.
