DNA testing is being conducted. “Bali bomber believed killed in southern Philippines,” from Agence France-Presse (thanks to JE):
THE terrorist who built the bombs used in the 2002 Bali atrocities is believed to have been killed in the Philippines, according to local military.
The body of a man thought to be Indonesian bomb expert Dulmatin, one of those behind the Bali bombings, was recovered from a shallow grave in the island of Tawi-tawi, said Major General Ben Dolorfino.
“As of now, we are conducting a DNA test to confirm if it is really his body,” said Maj-Gen Dolorfino, adding that an informant had led them to the grave.
The US government has offered a $10 million bounty for Dulmatin, who has been hiding out in the southern Philippines with local militants for most of the past five years.
