Jailed terror suspects may have been trying to target embassies

Anti-terrorism government officials in Indonesia have claimed men now in custody were aiming to target foreign embassies with bombs. Five suspects are in custody after a raid by Indonesia’s national police earlier this week.

According to police sources, embassies were under surveillance by the men, who had also taken photos of the U.S., U.K. and Australian official buildings.
Indonesian authorities have said Islamic cleric Abu Bakar Bashir was also arrested during the raids for allegedly playing a central role in the creation of a training camp for militants in Indonesia's Aceh region. Bashir has been arrested and jailed before over his alleged association with militant groups.
