1. France 24: Southeast Asias top terrorist killed in raid
An early morning raid on a militant hideout killed Noordin Mohammad Top, Southeast Asias most-wanted terrorist and the leader of an Islamist faction suspected of plotting terrorist attacks across the region, Indonesian police sources said on Thursday.

Indonesian police chief Bambang Hendarso Danuri confirmed that Top was among the four dead following a meeting with President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono. The details are with national police headquarters, Danuri added.

Police stormed the rented house being used as a hideout just outside Solo City in Central Java at around 2 am Paris time (GMT+2) following a nine-hour siege.

A Malaysian national, the 41-year-old Noordin is the leader of a militant group known as Al-Qaeda in the Malay Archipelago, a more violent splinter group of Jemaah Islamiyah, the group suspected of planning a spate of deadly attacks across Asia including the July 17 suicide bombings of the JW Marriott and Ritz-Carlton hotels in the capital, Jakarta. The attacks left a total of nine people dead, including six foreigners and the two suicide bombers.

Noordin is also suspected of planning an earlier attack on the Jakarta Marriott in 2003, on the Australian embassy in Indonesia in 2004 and a series of bombings on the island of Bali in 2005 that targeted foreign tourists.
