KLATEN, Indonesia (AFP) - – Indonesian police said Wednesday they had captured a key terror facilitator and killed an accomplice in two raids in central Java.

Abdullah Sunata was captured alive in Boyolali district while two suspects were arrested and another killed in an operation in neighbouring Klaten district, a police source said.

Sunata is a veteran of religious conflicts in the Poso and Ambon areas and had been released after serving several years in prison for his role in the 2004 bombing of the Australian embassy in Jakarta which killed 10 people.

He was a loyal follower of late terror leader Noordin Mohammed Top, who was killed by Indonesian police in September last year after one of Southeast Asia's biggest manhunts.

Noordin was responsible for a series of terror attacks in Indonesia including the embassy bombing and twin suicide blasts at luxury hotels in Jakarta last year which killed seven people.

Sunata, one of Indonesia's most wanted men, was also allegedly a central figure in the establishment of a terror training camp which was disrupted in Aceh province earlier this year.

One of the other men detained in Klaten was identified as Sogir, who had also spent time in jail over the embassy attack, police said.

"Those arrested alive in Klaten are Agus Mahmudi and Sogir, and the man killed was Yuli Kartono," a source in the counter-terror police force told AFP, without elaborating.

"Abdullah Sunata was arrested alive in Boyolali," he added.
