Bali bomber's body may have been found
by UPI

MANILA, Philippines -- The body believed to be that of an Indonesian militant wanted in the 2002 bombings in Bali may have been found in the Philippines.

The Philippine military said it thinks the body is that of Dulmatin, a member of the Indonesian Islamist group Jemaah Islamiyah who was accused of carrying out the bombing that killed more than 200 people on the Indonesian resort island.

The military said it acted on information provided by an informant and found Dulmatin's body Monday on the southern island of Tawi Tawi, the Voice of America reported. He had apparently been injured Jan. 31 in a clash with the Philippine Marines.

The United States has posted a $10 million reward for his capture, the report said.

The fugitive reportedly fled in 2003 to the southern Philippines, where he had been working with the Philippine militant group Abu Sayyaf, providing training in bomb making.

Both Jemaah Islamiyah and the Abu Sayyaf Group are listed as terrorist organizations by the U.S. State Department.

Authorities are conducting tests on the body, using genetic samples taken from Dulmatin's children, who were found in the southern Philippines last year, VOA reported. The children have since been sent back to Indonesia.
