Indonesian investigators suspect a key fugitive extremist of being behind Friday's suicide bombings at two hotels in Jakarta.
News reports from Indonesia Saturday quoted a top anti-terror official, Ansyaad Mbai as saying evidence points to Malaysian-born Noordin Mohammed Top. He is wanted for a string of attacks in Indonesia, including the 2002 and 2005 Bali bombings.
No one has claimed responsibility for the almost simultaneous attacks at the Marriott and Ritz-Carlton hotels that killed nine people and injured more than 50 others.
Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono visited both bombing sites Saturday. The governor of Jakarta has met with injured victims in hospitals.
Noordin Tops is believed to be linked to the regional terrorist group Jemaah Islamiya, which is blamed for the deadly Bali bombings and a string of other attacks. Jemaah Islamiya is linked to al-Qaida.
At least five foreigners were killed, including three Australians, a New Zealander and a Singaporean. Police say the death toll includes two suicide bombers. Citizens of many countries, including the United States, are among the injured.
U.S. President Barack Obama spoke with President Yudhoyono by phone Saturday. Mr. Obama congratulated him on his re-election and expressed U.S. solidarity with Indonesia following the Jakarta attacks, which killed nine people and injured more than 50 others.
Foreign ministers of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, (ASEAN) meeting in Thailand, condemned the bombings in a joint statement Saturday.
The United Nations Security Council issued a statement Friday urging countries to cooperate with Indonesia's investigation. U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon expressed confidence that those responsible for the bomb plot will be caught and prosecuted.
