Jemaah Islamiyah terrorist infiltrated airline to carry on “bigger attack”

A suspect wanted in connection with hotel suicide bombings in the Indonesian capital had infiltrated the national airline in a plot to carry out a “bigger attack,” the national police chief told members of parliament Monday.

The suspect, identified only as Syahrir, had been recruited by a militant network and was working as a technician with the airline, Garuda Indonesia, said National Police Chief Gen. Bambang Hendarso Danuri. Documents seized by police uncovered the plot to strike in Indonesia’s airline sector, he said, without providing details.

Syahrir had resigned from the airline, but remains at large, Danuri said.
