JI suspect arrested in southern Phillipines
2003-10-08
An Indonesian man suspected of being a key operative of the regional Muslim militant group Jemaah Islamiah was arrested a week ago in the southern Philippines, a Philippine police intelligence official said yesterday.The official said Taupik Rifqi, also known as Amil Irza, was tracked down on October 2 at a budget hotel in Cotabato City and was "now undergoing tactical interrogation at a military intelligence facility in Manila".The arrest of Rifqi - who the official said was believed to be a senior Jemaah Islamiah operative - came shortly before a planned eight-hour visit to Manila by the United States President, George Bush, on October 18, ahead of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit in Thailand.
