Indon militantís wife says husband trained Filipino rebels

Quezon City (9 October) -- The detained wife of a top Indonesian militant has told investigators that her husband and at least six other Jemaah Islamiyah operatives were still in the Philippines, training local insurgents, officials said Monday.

The suspects included Indonesians Dulmatin and Umar Patek, suspected plotters of the 2002 nightclub bombings in Bali, Indonesia, which killed 202 people, according to Dulmatin's wife, Istiada Binti Oemar Sovie.

She was detained by Philippine troops on southern Jolo Island last week.

She told investigators that Dulmatin's students in covert terror training camps included members of the Muslim rebel Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF), which is engaged in peace talks with the government, and the smaller but more violent Abu Sayyaf group.

She said MILF and Abu Sayyaf militants gave them sanctuary in a number of southern provinces, but another local rebel group, the Moro National Liberation Front, turned them away from one area in Jolo early this year. (PIA) [top]
