“Pakistan will deport six Indonesian students suspected of having links to terrorism next week, including the brother of a recently detained militant considered to be Al-Qaeda’s point man in Asia, Indonesian officials said yesterday.” This from Straits Times, with thanks to nicolei.
“The suspects, all of whom were studying at the Abubakar Islamic University in Karachi when they were arrested on suspicion of terrorism in September, will be questioned by Indonesian police when they return to Jakarta, said Brig-Gen Soenarko, a police spokesman.
“Pakistan officials have said the men are suspected of having links to Jemaah Islamiah, the Al-Qaeda-linked terror group accused in last year’s Bali bombings that killed 202 people. . . . A senior Islamabad-based security official has said the students were part of a JI sleeper cell.”
Now wait a minute. They were studying at an Islamic University? Didn’t they learn there that the Qur’an teaches peace and nonviolence?
