Jakarta: Police say a 20th suspect arrested in two Indonesian bomb plots is a TV news cameraman.
National police spokesman Colonel Boy Rafli Amar said on Saturday that Imam Firdaus was arrested a day earlier in Jakarta and was recruited into the group to film and broadcast its terrorist acts.
Arya Sinulingga, news director of the Jakarta-based Global-TV, confirmed Firdaus worked there and expressed remorse over the involvement of media employees in terrorism.
The 20 people arrested this week are suspected in Islamic militant plots to bomb a church ahead of Easter Celebrations and sending mail bombs last month.
Police found the bomb placed near a church after the arrests. Only one of the mail bombs exploded, wounding four people.
