Terrorists' weapons from the Philippines, police say

National Police chief Gen. Bambang Hendarso Danuri said Friday the rifles and bullets seized from terrorist suspects arrested recently were mostly smuggled from the Philippines.

"One of the suspects had been assigned to take 21 rifles from Mindanao, the Philippines, but we arrested him before he left," Bambang told the press.

The police's counterterrorism squad has arrested 58 suspects and killed 13 others across the country since January this year.

The latest raid was conducted on Thursday at a battery shop in Sukoharjo, Central Java, where the squad nabbed three suspects.

The police claimed many of the suspects had undergone training in Mindanao, home to Muslim separatist rebels in the Catholic-predominantly Philippines.
