Military claims to have found Dulmatin's body in Tawi-Tawi (Bali Bomber)

(Updated 8:30 a.m.) A body believed to be that of Indonesian terrorist leader Dulmatin, wanted for the October 2002 Bali bombings, was recovered Monday afternoon by a joint military team in Tawi-Tawi province.

Intelligence reports said the body was found 1:30 p.m. at the vicinity of Sitio Salisit in Balimbing village, Panglima Sugala town in Tawi-Tawi.

"(The) said corpse was jointly identified by informants with notable wounds in the head, chest and right foot to include clothing in physical characteristics matched with previous revelations," the report said.

The body was exhumed for deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) testing for confirmation.

Reached for comments, Marine commandant Maj. Gen. Ben Dolorfino said that if the remains turn out to be that really of Dulmatin, his death could be traced to the January 31 clash in the province.

"That is the report we got from our units in Tawi-Tawi. Remember that during the January 31 encounter, he was reported injured," Dolorfino told reporters.

Dolorfino said an informant led government troops to Dulmatin's supposed gravesite and that based on the informant's accounts of the slain terrorist's injuries, "it matched with (the accounts) of our witness."

"This is a big blow to the JI and the Abu Sayyaf," Dolorfino said.

Dulmatin, who had been a target of a manhunt operations in Mindanao, was a senior figure in the militant group Jemaah Islamiyah (JI). He was one of the most wanted terrorists in Southeast Asia. He is also known as Amar Usmanan, Joko Pitoyo, Joko Pitono, Abdul Matin, Pitono, Muktarmar, Djoko, and Noval.

Dulmatin was allegedly one of the masterminds behind the 2002 Bali bombings in Indonesia which killed 202 people, including seven US citizens. - GMANews.TV

Terrorist's are like mosquitoes. There is another born every minute. We can kill them by the hundreds, thousands, and their religion of hate will create more.

Another one will just take his place. After all, there are 101 Dulmatins.

The interesting thing is if the guy was indeed killed, why didn’t anyone take credit?

D'oh...mever mind...I was reading the posts and didn't realize the military was claiming credit. I am a moron....nothing new there.....

But now we do get to more interesting stuff...lotsa AQ guys are turning up dead. I'm guessing we found a laptop a few months back that might have had a lot of cell phone numbers on it. That would explain the damaged internet cables in the middle east and the need to use cell phones, which then betrayed locations.

More evidence it is indeed smelling like a cleanup operation worldwide before the children are put in charge.

I am seeing a pattern here in the last six or so months. I’m thinking that the Bush Administration and Allies are going full throttle to kill as many terrorists as possible before we, the People, hand victory over to the Surrender Party come this November.

This Australian offers his sympathy to you. The large number of Australians killed in the Bali Bombings has somewhat masked the tragedy for other nations that they also entailed.

We lost people in New York - America lost people in Bali. We have to stand together until all the scum who did this are gone.

This is an excellent get for the Philippines. Their military has been working hard to break up the last few terrorists on the islands.
