Indonesian police arrested one of the country's most-wanted Islamic militants Friday, accusing him of plotting high-profile assassinations and attacks on foreigners at luxury hotels in the capital, officials said.

Abu Tholut, captured during an anti-terror raid on a home in Central Java, allegedly helped set up a militant training camp in westernmost Aceh province that was uncovered by police early this year. A militant turncoat told The Associated Press after the arrest that Tholut was one of the country's most dangerous terror leaders.

Police officials, speaking to the AP on condition of anonymity because they did not have authority to talk to the media, said the suspect helped recruit members and raise money for Jamaah Anshorut Tauhid terror cell.
