A nation-wide police campaign against terrorist cells has produced high-profile victories for Indonesian police authorities and provided President Yudhoyono with bragging rights during an official visit to Australia and on the eve of a planned visit by U.S. President Barack Obama.

A series of raids by highly-trained officers from the elite Densus 88 squad included a shoot-out in Pamulang, Tangerang, West Java in which three terrorists were killed. Among the dead was 40 year old Dulmatin, a man with a US$10 million price on his head for his role in helping to mastermind the 2002 Bali bombing that killed 202 people. The reward offered for the Dulmatin was part of an official bounty offered by the U.S. government and will reportedly not be claimed by the Indonesian police.

Dulmatin, a former student at a religious boarding school set up by Abu Bakar Bashir, was once incorrectly reported as killed by Philippine authorities in the southern part of that country, after fleeing Indonesia in 2003. Dulmatin, whose real name was Joko Pitono, had operated under a number of aliases including Abdul Matin and Maktarmar. An international terrorist thought to be an expert in explosives, he had contributed to terrorist acts in Indonesia, the Philippines and Afghanistan prior to his death.
