Top Asian Terrorist Killed in Raid

Noordin Mohamed Top, a terrorist who allegedly masterminded bombings in Bali and Jakerta that claimed the lives of almost 300 people, was killed early Thursday morning in a police raid. Noordin has been Southeast Asia’s most-wanted terrorist and fingerprints were used to confirm his identity after the siege. In a 2008 report, the U.S. State Department wrote that Noordin was involved in every major anti-Western attack in Indonesia since 2002. He had previously escaped two police shootouts unharmed.
