11:28 pm on 2 October 2011

Indonesian police say they have arrested a suspected Muslim militant for allegedly plotting suicide attacks.

The man, Beni Asri, was reported to have been flown to the capital Jakarta after being captured in a raid on his parents' house in west Sumatra.

He is wanted in connection with a suicide bombing on a mosque in April.

Ben Asri is also suspected of helping to plot a suicide bomb attack on a church in the central Java town of Solo last weekend that injured at least 20 people.
