A leading Indonesian weekly magazine has alleged that one of the militants responsible for attacks on Christian villages in central Sulawesi was trained by a Jemaah Islamiah leader. It claimed the Jemaah Islamiah (JI) leader was involved in the August bombing of the JW Marriott hotel in Jakarta. Tempo magazine says a JI leader captured by Indonesian police three months ago, gave special training to a group of militants in Poso, central Sulawesi. Regional terrorist group JI has been blamed for the Bali bombings and other attacks in Indonesia. A radical, known as Madong, led a group of militants that police say launched attacks on Christian villages this month killing 13 people. Madong, 27, was reportedly killed by police in forests close to Poso last week. According to Tempo, Mustofa, the head of JI's regional command Mantiqi III, gave Madong and a small group of young Muslim men military training in camps around Poso during 2001. Mustofa, a former Afghan veteran, is believed to have been a key figure behind the JW Marriott hotel attack. Another of the militants trained by Mustofa, Ikhwanudin, who was involved in attacks this month in Poso, said the militants have hundreds of supporters and the revenge attacks would continue as long as they received orders. Asked about who ordered the latest attacks, he said he did not know. 'It was the orders from above. The people in the field don't care why. They only want to take revenge, their revenge will not finish,' he said. He also claimed that a JI leader was hiding in central Sulawesi. Analysts and local aid workers said it was not clear whether the attacks were ordered to coincide with the first anniversary of the Bali bombing on October 12 which killed 202 people.
