Padang: Indonesia`s anti-terrorism squad has arrested one of the country`s most wanted Muslim militants for allegedly plotting suicide attacks.

Local police chief Lt Col Lufti Martadian said Sunday that Beni Asri was captured without a fight on Friday near his parents` house in Solok of West Sumatra province.

He says that Asri was flown to Jakarta hours after he was arrested for allegedly helping plot a suicide bombing in a church in the Central Java town of Solo on Sept. 25 that injured 22 worshippers.

The 26-year-old was one of five men wanted for allegedly plotting an April suicide bombing that injured 30 police officers praying in a mosque in the West Java town of Cirebon.
