Indonesian police detained a suspect who may have helped fund last month's hotel bombings in Jakarta that killed seven people. Mohamad Jibril Abdurahman, a 30-year-old Indonesian, was taken into police custody late Tuesday, hours after police announced they were searching for him, National Police spokesman Maj. Gen. Nanan Sukarna said Wednesday. He did not give any details on why police suspect Abdurahman was involved. Police have detained five suspects so far in the July 17 attacks on the J.W. Marriott and Ritz-Carlton hotels, while five suspects remain at large.
