I had to steal a link from Brian for this, but I could not pass this up.
It would seem that two Indonesian members of Jemaah Islamiyah were on their way to Syria but were arrested in Malaysia. Here is one of the reasons why they got caught.
"They said themselves that they were heading to Syria to meet with a larger terrorist network, but we are not sure what group they are referring to," National Police spokesman Brig. Gen. Anton Bachrul Alam told a media conference.
Agus is reportedly the leader of JI in Poso, Central Sulawesi, which has in the past been the scene of deadly religious violence. JI is said to have links with al-Qaeda. Agus, who graduated from Airlangga University's School of Medicine, in Surabaya, East Java, is also believed to have served as a doctor for fugitive terrorist Noordin M. Top.
(National Police spokesman Brig. Gen. Anton Bachrul) Alam said the police had been searching for Agus and Abdul over their alleged involvement in the religious violence in Poso between 2000 and 2002 that claimed more than 2,000 lives and displaced 100,000 others.
The conflict ended in a truce that was mediated by a government team led by Jusuf Kalla, currently Indonesia's vice president. However, sporadic bomb attacks and assassinations continue to plague several areas of Central Sulawesi. Alam said Agus was directly involved in some of the worst violence in Central Sulawesi, including the mutilation of three female high school students, bombings at Tentena and a robbery at a shop selling gold in Poso.
On 28 May 2005, bombs exploded at a market in Tentena, a coastal town near Poso, killing 22 people. "He was involved in the mutilation of the three female high school students that occurred near Poso on Nov. 29, 2005." "And in February 2006 he was involved in a gold store robbery in Poso, in which the owner of the store was shot and killed. Around three kilograms of gold were stolen," Alam said.
