Is he dead yet? Is he dead yet?

Well, hopefully he is this time.

Good riddance to bad rubbish.
JAKARTA (Reuters) - Indonesia's most wanted Islamic militant, Noordin Mohammad Top, died during a police raid on a house in Central Java overnight, police said on Thursday, lifting a major security threat in Southeast Asia.

Malaysian-born Top, who set up a violent splinter group of the regional militant group, Jemaah Islamiah, was widely considered the mastermind behind bomb attacks on two luxury hotels in Jakarta in July, as well as other attacks in Bali and in Jakarta, killing scores of Westerners and Indonesians.

National police chief Bambang Hendarso Danuri, when asked if it was true that Top had been killed, told reporters: "Yes, yes yes." The police chief had just held a meeting with President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono.
