Terror suspect killed in Indonesia

Indonesian security forces have raided suspected terror hideouts in central Sulawesi, killing one suspect and arresting two others.

National police spokesman Major General Suhardi Alius said gunfire was exchange during raids in the villages of Tambarana and Kalora in Poso district.

Hundreds of police and soldiers, along with the country's anti-terror squad, have been combing a mountainous jungle area in Poso which is believed to be home to a terrorist training camp.

Earlier this month, two police officers investigating terrorist activities in the area were found dead.

Indonesia has been battling terrorists since the 2002 bombings in Bali which killed 202 people, mostly foreign tourists.
