Bali bomb maker Dulmatin found in shallow grave


THE terrorist who built the bombs used in the 2002 Bali atrocity is believed to have been killed in the Philippines.

The body of a man thought to be Indonesian bomb expert Dulmatin, one of those behind the Bali bombings, was recovered from a shallow grave in the island of Tawi-tawi, said Major General Ben Dolorfino.

He is believed to have built the devices used in the 2002 Bali atrocity, in which 202 people were killed including 88 Australians.

"As of now, we are conducting DNA test to confirm if it is really his body," said Dolorfino, adding that an informant had led them to the grave.

$5 million bounty

The US Government has offered a US$5 million bounty for Dulmatin, who has been hiding out in the southern Philippines with local militants for most of the past five years.

Dulmatin was reported to have been wounded in a clash with government troops in the south on January 31.
