JAKARTA, Indonesia — Police on Tuesday arrested six suspected terrorists, including four teenagers, during a series of raids in central Indonesia.

Ansyaad Mbai, who heads Indonesia's anti-terrorism agency, said several low-explosive weapons also were seized in the raids.

TVOne television reported that among those arrested in the towns of Klaten and Solo were three high school students and one recent high school graduate.

Indonesia, the world's most populous Muslim nation, has battled Islamist militants with links to the Southeast Asian network Jemaah Islamiyah since 2002, when extremists bombed a nightclub district on Bali island, killing 202 people. There have been at least three deadly attacks across the country since then.
