An anti-terror squad raided an Islamic militant stronghold in central Indonesia on Monday, touching off a gunbattle that killed nine suspected fighters and one officer, the local police chief said. The clash took place in Poso town on Sulawesi Island, the scene of bloody fighting between Muslim and Christian gangs six years ago and sporadic bombings and shootings by Islamic extremists since then, Brig. Gen. Badrodin Haiti said.
