Anti-terror police arrested a suspected Islamic terror operative and seized explosives from his home in central Indonesia on Monday, a top security official said. The capture of Ahmad Khoirul Uman - accused of having ties to the al-Qaida-linked regional terror network, Jemaah Islamiyah - brought the number of terror suspects detained on Java island in the last week to eight. Several of those arrested are suspected of having played a role in the 2002 Bali bombings that killed 202 people. Others have been linked to the 2004 Australian Embassy bombing in the Indonesian capital, Jakarta, that left 10 dead.
