Filipino terrorist leader caught

The recent capture of a Filipino terror suspect long sought by American and Philippine security officials has crippled his violent al-Qaida-linked group believed to be responsible for one of Southeast Asia’s deadliest terror attacks, police said Tuesday.

Dinno-Amor Rosalejos Pareja, also known as Khalil Pareja, allegedly headed the Rajah Solaiman Movement — a group of Christian converts to Islam — that officials say was behind the 2004 Manila ferry bombing that killed 116 people in the country’s worst terror attack.
