SBY confirms Bali bomber Dulmatin killed in raid
March 11th, 2010

INDONESIAN President Susilo Bambang
Yudhoyono has confirmed that Jemaah Islamiah leader Dulmatin was one of
three men killed in a raid in Jakarta yesterday.

Dulmatin was a key player in the 2002 Bali bombings which killed 202 people, including 88 Australians.

Dr Yudhoyono made the surprise admission despite authorities in Jakarta insisting they had yet to complete forensic testing to establish the
identity of the man shot dead in an internet cafe in the Indonesian capital’s western area.

Indonesia’s minister for politics, law and security Djoko Suyanto immediately cast doubt on the pronouncement, saying on the sidelines of the presidential visit in Canberra that “it’s not confirmed yet to be Dulmatin; I have asked the chief of police, and there is not yet certainty. To be absolutely certain we need to conduct DNA tests”

Two other people were shot in accompanying raids yesterday while trying to escape by motorbike.

The confusion over the identity and timing of the assassination-style killing of Dulmatin raises questions about political motivations for
the raid, which followed two weeks of high-publicity anti-terrorism activity in Aceh and came immediately before both Dr Yudhoyono’s visit
to Canberra and US President Barack Obama’s trip to Jakarta next week.
