From the Jakarta Post:
A bomb attack on a cafe in the town of Palopo, South Sulawesi, was part of a jihad (holy war) against vice in nightclubs and bars, a key suspect was quoted on Monday by the provincial police as saying.
“That’s our preliminary conclusion based on the confession by key suspect Jasmin who was captured yesterday (Sunday),” South Sulawesi Police spokesman Sr. Comr. Andi Nurman Thahir told Antara.
He said Jasmin alias Jamir alias Yamming told investigators that he objected to rampant “sinful activities” in nightclubs and bars, such as prostitution.
Nurman said Jasmin confessed to having bombed the Sampoddo Indah Cafe in Palopo on Jan. 10, killing four people and seriously injuring three others. . . .
Nurman said the police had not yet established which group the 14 suspects belonged to, but said they had once participated in a training camp run by the hard-line Laskar Jihad group in Poso regency, Central Sulawesi.
