Indonesia’s most wanted man and the terrorist blamed for a string of attacks including the Bali bombings is believed to have blown himself up to avoid capture. Azahari Husin apparently triggered a bomb killing himself and two accomplices at his hideout in East Java on Nov. 09 (Wednesday). Shots were fired as police surrounded a villa in the hill resort town of Batu, near Malang, according to local television news stations. The area is south of Indonesia’s second largest city of Surabaya. Witnesses told of at least two explosions after crack Detachment 88 anti-terror police raided the house. Earlier the area had been cordoned off and electricity had been cut. A Detachment 88 source said that the police raid was linked to the October 1 triple suicide bombing on three cafes in Kuta and Jimbaran in Bali which killed 20 people including four Australians. Malaysian-born Husin was said to be the brains behind a string of terror bombings, including the recent Bali bombings, last year’s Australian Embassy attack and the 2003 suicide car bombing of the J.W. Marriott Hotel in Jakarta. Along with suicide bomb recruiter and fellow Malaysian Noordin Top, he was Indonesia’s most wanted man.
