Since last night Indonesian news has been reporting that police have possibly shot terror suspect Noordin Mohammad Top. Top was believed to be behind the recent Jakarta bombings at the J.W. Marriott and Ritz Carlton hotels in Jakarta that killed nine people.
“The information we are getting is that it’s him,” said police spokesman Nanan Soekarna . “[But] the police cannot confirm if Noordin is dead or not. We still can’t get into the house.”
Police are awaiting DNA tests before they will confirm the identity of the people shot. Police used robots to enter the suspects’ house to search for bombs, in a siege that lasted 17 hours.
