JAKARTA, Indonesia – Indonesian police say a suspected Muslim militant has been critically wounded when a homemade bomb strapped to the back of his bicycle detonated prematurely. No one else was hurt.

Police spokesman Col. Boy Rafli Amar says the intended target was not immediately clear.The low-explosive device, packed with ball-bearings and nails to maximize its intensity, went off Thursday about 100 yards (meters) from a police post outside of Jakarta.



Amar said the man was hospitalized. Police are hoping to question him about a letter in his pocket saying he wanted "revenge for his friends."
