Indonesian Police Ask for Public Help to Catch Bali Bombing Suspects
08 October 2005
Indonesian police are appealing to the public for help in catching two men identified as key suspects in last week's suicide bombings in Bali.
Police helicopters dropped leaflets in central Java Saturday that included pictures of the wanted men - Noordin Mohamed Top and Azahari bin Husin. The document described both as "dangerous terrorists."
Indonesian authorities say they narrowly missed catching Noordin Mohamed Top during a raid on a house in central Java early Friday.
Azahari bin Husin is a top bombmaker for the militant group, Jemaah Islamiyah, which is believed to be responsible for the attacks.
The explosions at the three cafes killed 23 people, including the three suicide bombers. The victims included 14 Indonesians, four Australians and a Japanese national. One person remains unidentified.
About 100 surfers remembered the victims Saturday by placing flowers in the water near the site of two of the bombed cafes.
