Indonesian militants building base for attacks in Philippines and Indonesia

Reported here:
Two Jamaah Islamiyah leaders have cut their ties with the Indonesian-based terrorist group and established a base in the southern Philippines to continue waging attacks in both countries, according to a captured Indonesian militant.

The Indonesian militants - Dulmatin, who goes by one name, and Umar Patek - have trained recruits and plotted attacks in their southern Philippine base, but their efforts have been hampered by several arrests and army offensives, according to a report on theinterrogation of Abdullah Sunata, an alleged rebel leader captured in Indonesia in June...

...Dulmatin, an electronics specialist known for his bomb-making expertise, and Patek, who has focused on recruitment and training, are key suspects in the 2002 nightclub bombings that killed 202 people in Indonesia's Bali island. The attacks are blamed on al-Qaeda-linked Jamaah Islamiyah.
