" The Police's Anti Terrorists DENSUS-88 has been successful once again! "
That's what I thought when I watched the news on several TV stations that the Police has killed two men who were believed to be Syaifudin Zuhri and Muhamad Syaril, who recruited & brainwashed the suicide bombers of Hotel JW Marriot and Hotel Ritz-Carlton last July.
According to the the Police's Chief PR, Inspector General Nanan Soekarna the terrorists were killed during a Police raid this afternoon at their rental room in Tangerang, Banten. The Police found 7 pipe bombs at terrorists rooms. This raid was carried out after the Police arrested a terrorist suspect i.e. Fajar, earlier in the morning in Bekasi, West Java.
Confirmation on the identities of the dead terrorists shall be announced to the public next Monday after the Police received clarification from the Forensic Unit.

Considering the above, I would like to thank all the members of DENSUS-88 for their endless efforts to eliminate terrorists so that Indonesia will be a much safer place to live.
