Indonesian Authorities Arrest Three in Connection with Bali Bombings


Indonesian police have arrested three men in connection with the October 1 Bali bombings that left 23 people dead.

Indonesian police said Wednesday the men were flown to Bali from neighboring Java island for questioning at Bali police headquarters.

Australian and French news agencies say at least one of the men arrested (Cholily) was captured during a series of counter-terrorism raids last week in Indonesia. The raids ended with the death of alleged extremist bombmaker Azahari bin Husin.

Indonesian authorities blame Azahari bin Husin for orchestrating last month's attacks in Bali as well as the 2002 Bali bombings that killed more than 200 people.
