Indonesia Arrests 2 Suspects in Jakarta Bombings

Indonesian police say they have arrested two men suspected of arranging funds for last month's deadly hotel bombings in Jakarta.

Authorities identified the men Wednesday only as "Ali" and "Iwan." They say Ali is believed to be a Saudi national.

The arrests are part of an investigation into the July 17 suicide bomb attacks on the Marriott and Ritz Carlton hotels. Nine people died, including the bombers.

Authorities suspect Malaysian extremist Noordin Top organized the attacks.

Also Wednesday, Indonesian police announced the names of four suspected members of Noordin's terrorist network. The men are suspected of recruiting suicide bombers, as well as hiding Noordin and a bomb-making associate.
