Hiding in Plain Sight


MAY 09, 2019

Police anti-terror unit Densus 88 found explosive ingredients for a bomb at a cellphone accessories kiosk called "Wanky Cell" in Bekasi, West Java, on Wednesday. The discovery was made during a raid on terrorist hideouts in the area, where some of Indonesia's most wanted terrorists have been captured. Solihin, the leader of Islamic State-affiliated Jamaah Ansharut Daulah (JAD), who was involved in the 2016 Thamrin bombing in Jakarta, was arrested in his hideout in Pondok Ungu, near Bekasi, on Saturday.
