Police said Eko Budi Wardoyo, also known as Ada Munsih or Amin, was caught a week ago in Sidoarjo, East Java province.
“The police have succeeded in arresting a suspect who was involved in the bombing in Tentena, Poso, in 2005,” police spokesman Edward Aritonang said.
“He was also involved in the shooting of priest Susianti Tinulele, and the bombing of the Tual market in Palu,” Aritonang said.
On May 28, 2005, two bombs tore through a meat market in the mainly Christian town of Tentena, in Central Sulawesi‘s Poso Regency, in an attack blamed on regional Islamic terror network Jemaah Islamiyah (JI).
Police would not comment on whether Wardoyo was a member of JI.
Tinulele was shot dead in a church in Palu, Central Sulawesi’s capital, in July, 2004.
Fighting between Muslims and Christians in Poso and surrounding districts claimed about 1,000 lives in 2000-2001. The government brokered a peace deal in the area.
