SOUTHEAST Asian militant network Jemaah Islamiah has formed an assassination squad to attack police, prosecutors and judges, a Singapore newspaper said today, citing an Indonesian official.
Ansyaad Mbai, head of the anti-terrorism division at Indonesia's security ministry, said the group planned to target a list of "infidels" including the rector of a Christian University and an official at the Attorney-General's Office in central Java, the Straits Times reported.
Officials uncovered the assassination plans after a series of raids in Java last month, when investigators found charts detailing Jemaah Islamiah's new structure, as well as a large cache of arms including M-16 rifles, the paper said.
"This has never happened before. These M-16s are not hidden in the forests but are carried around. They are well-prepared to use the rifles in pursuit of a target," Mr Mbai was quoted as saying, adding the group was targeting locals and foreigners.
