The Jakarta Globe, February 01, 2013,


Police in Central Sulawesi managed to defuse 12 suspected pipe bombs they discovered in a plantation in the restive district of Poso on Friday morning.

The 12 objects, which were in the form of pipes between 10 to 15 centimeters long, were uncovered at around 9 a.m and were immediately defused by the Gegana bomb squad from the police mobile brigade unit, known as Brimob, of Central Sulawesi, according to Sr. Comr. Agus Rianto, the head of the National Police general information department,

“I have not yet obtained further information on the contents of those bombs and whether they are related to the terrorrist network currently operating in Poso," Agus said, adding that the bombs were found at the Gunung Moengko Lama plantation in the Moengko Lama ward of the Poso district.

Police have strengthened security in Poso since late last year after two police officers investigating a camp were found with their throats slit.

Police are still hunting down several wanted terrorist suspects believed to be in Poso, which is known as a terrorist hotbed, including Santoso, who is also known as Abu Warda, and bomb expert Taupik Bulaga.

They are both suspected of involvement in a series of terror cases in Poso, including the slaughter of the two police officers, the shooting of police officers in a bank heist and several bomb plots.

Santoso, who is believed to have been involved in a series of terrorism activities in the country, is the No. 1 most wanted suspect for the National Police's counter terrorism squad, Densus 88.
