Terror boss Noordin Top 'arrested or killed' in shootout at hideout ^ | 8th August 2009

Posted on 08/07/2009 11:10:00 PM PDT by naturalman1975

TWO body bags were seen being taken from a suspected hideout of terror suspect Noordin Top in Indonesia after a raid by police special forces.

He was killed during a raid on his hideout, local television reported.

The television station did not disclose its sources and police have not confirmed the report, which came as ambulances arrived at the suspected hideout following a 17-hour siege involving heavy gunfire and explosions.

A witness said that two body bags were taken from the house.

Elite police carrying assault rifles entered the house in Central Java after it had been besieged as part of investigations into last month's twin suicide bombings on hotels in the capital Jakarta, which killed Australians.

Meanwhile, authorities said two would-be suicide bombers had been killed in a linked raid near Jakarta.

Police had earlier set off explosions at the house and fired repeated volleys from their assault rifles into the property in a dramatic conclusion to the standoff, which started at around 4pm on Friday.
