Jakarta: Indonesia`s elite anti-terror squad
arrested the country`s most-wanted man and two of his aides in
a series of coordinated raids on Java island, police said.
Another suspected militant was killed the shootout.

Abdullah Sunata is accused of helping set up a network
that was reportedly plotting a Mumbai-style attack targeting
foreigners at luxury hotels in the capital, Jakarta, and
several high-profile assassinations, including President
Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono.
He jumped to the top of the fugitive list in the world`s
most populous Muslim nation following the deaths of Nordin M.
Top and Dulmatin, who both died at the hands of police in the
last year.

"We have successfully arrested Sunata and two other
suspects," national police spokesman Maj. Gen. Edward
Aritonang told The Associated Press after a raid on their
rented home in Cungkrungan, a village in Central Java province
late Wednesday. They found a bomb in a backpack and several
revolvers.
An earlier raid on a house in nearby Girimulya village
also yielded explosives and weapons.

Police could not immediately confirm a report on Metro TV
that said documents discovered during one of the sieges
indicated the men were planning an attack on the Danish
embassy in Jakarta.
