The Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono has confirmed suspected terror mastermind Dulmatin had been killed in a police raid in Jakarta. The president, on a three-day visit to Australia, said a raid against militants hiding out in the capital had resulted in the death of the man believed to have been behind the 2002 bombings on the resort island of Bali. "We can confirm that one of those that were killed was Mr Dulmatin, one of the top Southeast Asian terrorists that we have been looking for," Mr Yudhoyono said through an interpreter in Canberra.
