Both Indons and Aussie police are hunting for two Malaysians, who are top Jemaah Islamiah (JI) terrorists. Dr Azahari Husin is reputed as JI chief bomb maker, carrying the nickname of Demolitian Man. Noordin Mohammed is JI’s ace in finance and recruiting. They are the most wanted men in Indonesia and Australia.
The 2 nations' police named the two Malaysians as the masterminds behind a series of horrendous terrorist bombings. Dr Azahari’s involvement has struck terror into the hearts of ASEAN police as they expect him to step up JI’s suicide bombing campaign against soft Western targets in the ASEAN's tourist areas. The Thai police have raised its security alert in the resort area of Phuket.
Security experts are also worried by the JI’s use of high tech explosives, compared to its earlier employment of home-made bomb constructed from fertilisers. This means that the bomb packs will be smaller, deadlier and more difficult to detect.
