Al Qaeda links with South East Asia fraying?

Alleged bomb maker Umar Patek described his frustration in re-establishing militant ties in his quest to go to Afghanistan.



Jakarta: A top Indonesian terrorist suspect captured in the Pakistani town where Osama bin Laden was later killed insists he was unaware of the al Qaeda leader`s presence there, according to the video of his interrogation obtained by a news agency.
Alleged bomb maker Umar Patek also describes his frustration in re-establishing militant ties in his quest to go to Afghanistan. He had to make his own arrangements to fly to Pakistan and then waited there for months before a years-old militant contact finally got back to him.
His remarks, if true, would further bolster evidence that Southeast Asia`s Jemaah Islamiyah terrorist movement, responsible for the 2002 Bali nightclub bombings, is now largely cut off from its long-standing al Qaeda sponsorship.
