Indonesia Posts Rewards for Information on Bali Bombers

Police in Indonesia have announced a $10,000 (100 million rupiah) reward for information identifying the three men who carried out suicide bomb attacks on Bali earlier this month.

Officials are distributing hundreds of thousands of photos of the bombers' severed heads as well as of the Malaysian fugitives accused in the plot. Weeks of police work have failed to identify the bombers or uncover organizers behind the attacks that killed 23 people, including the bombers, October 1.

Indonesian authorities also are offering a reward of $100,000 (one billion rupiah) for information leading to the arrest of Malaysian suspects Noordin Mohamed Top and Azahari bin Husin.

The two are alleged leaders of the al Qaida-linked regional terror group Jemaah Islamiyah, which is also blamed in the 2002 Bali bomb attacks that killed 202 people.
