Nordin Mohammed Top believed killed in raid

Excellent news if true.

SOUTH-East Asia's most wanted terror suspect Nordin Mohammed Top, is believed to have been killed during a raid on a suspected militant hide-out in Indonesia

Heavily armed counter-terrorism police stormed the hide-out in central Java province to end a 16-hour siege that reportedly killed Top, who is wanted for multiple suicide bombings in Indonesia, and two other men.

Local television stations reported Top, who is blamed for last month's attacks on two hotels in Jakarta, was killed in the bathroom of the house in a rice-growing village in central Java province following a lengthy bomb and gun battle.

Those reports were not confirmed by police. DNA tests will likely have to be performed to ensure the identification.
