INDONESIAN police fear the terrorist masterminds of the Australian embassy bombing in Jakarta are planning deadly attacks every six months.
They also say that al-Qaeda money was used by the South East Asia-based Jemaah Islamiah group to fund the September 9 blast as well as last year’s Marriott Hotel suicide attack in the Indonesian capital.
Police sources said Malaysian bomb maker Azahari Husin and bag man Noordin Mohammed Top were aiming to increase the tempo of attacks, which have claimed 223 lives since the Bali bombings of 2002.
“If within six months they have no chances, then it will be done in the next six months,” a senior police source was quoted today as saying by the Republika newspaper.
Azahari, the bespectacled British-trained geophysics professor, and Noordin are currently being hunted across Indonesia by US-trained anti-terrorist squads.
Now why would a British-trained geophysics professor become a bomb maker for an Islamic terrorist group? You’d think he’d be smart enough to read all those peaceful passages in the Qur’an and recognize the error of his ways.
