Abdullah Sunata, Indonesia's most wanted person, has been arrested, according to national police spokesman Major General Edward Aritonang.
Yahoo News reports:
Abdullah Sunata is accused of helping set up a network that was reportedly plotting a Mumbai-style attack targeting foreigners at luxury hotels in the capital, Jakarta, and several high-profile assassinations, including President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono.
He jumped to the top of the fugitive list in the world's most populous Muslim nation following the deaths of Nordin M. Top and Dulmatin, who both died at the hands of police in the last year.
Sunata was arrested with two other suspects in a rented house in Central Java Wednesday. A bomb and several firearms were recovered from the house.
Documents recovered during the raids indicate that Sunata and company were planning to attack the Danish Embassy in Jakarta.
The planned attack could be an offshoot of the 2005 publication of caricatures depicting the Prophet Muhammad in a Danish newspaper which sparked widespread protests in Indonesia.
Sunata was sentenced to seven years in prison in 2006 for hiding Top, an expert bomb-maker who once headed Jemaah Islamiyah. He was released in April 2009 for good behavior, but returned to the terrorist network, the report added.
