11 Islamic extremists arrested in Indionesia

INDONESIA'S anti-terrorist squad has arrested 11 Islamic extremists, who were allegedly planning attacks on the US embassy in Jakarta and a shopping centre opposite the Australian embassy.

ABC News reported a spokesman for the Indonesian police saying the terror cell had bombs ready to go and other explosives intended for a series of attacks across the country.

The anti-terrorist unit, Detachment 88, arrested 11 people in four provinces, with a man called Abu Hanifah, from the central Java city of Solo, allegedly leading the group.

Police Inspector General Aliyus told the ABC the taskforce had "confiscated some ready-to-use bombs and explosive materials and a bomb manual".

Authorities believe a long-standing crackdown on terrorist groups has weakened the Jemaah Islamiyah cell accused of the Bali bombings in 2002 and the 2009 attack on Jakarta.
