JAKARTA, Indonesia (AP) - Indonesia's president says a top-ranked Southeast Asian militant wanted for planning the 2002 Bali bombings has been identified as the man shot dead by police in a raid on the island of Java.
President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono told officials in a speech in the Australian capital, Canberra, on Wednesday that suspected Jemaah Islamiyah leader Dulmatin was the man shot dead in a raid at an Internet cafe southwest of Jakarta on Tuesday.
Dulmatin is wanted in the suicide bombings that tore through two Bali nightclubs popular with Westerners, killing 202 people in Indonesia's deadliest terrorist attack.
