JAKARTA, Indonesia Police detained 17 suspects believed involved in a series of deadly ambushes at the world's largest gold mine, an official said Tuesday.

The men were rounded up Monday at several locations within a few miles of the Grasberg mining complex operated by U.S. conglomerate Freeport McMoRan Copper & Gold, Inc., said Papua Police Chief Bagus Ekodanto.

Police also confiscated ammunition, but it was unclear if the bullets matched those found at the scene of shootings that left three people dead, including a 29-year-old Australian, an Indonesian security guard and a policeman.

At least 12 others, most of them police, were wounded in the five days of attacks starting July 11 along a road between the mine and the town of Timika.
