National Police spokesman Insp. Gen. Edward Aritonang said Wednesday that his team had detected the whereabouts of wanted terrorists Umar Patek (right) and Heru Kuncoro. However, the police refused to reveal the location for fear ofÂ spoiling the hunt.
The Philippines‘ government reportedly has informed that Umar Patek alias Umar Syekh, as well as Heru, brother-in-law of Southeast Asiaâ€™s most wanted terrorist Dulmatin who was shot dead in a recent raid in Pamulang, Banten, was hiding in Sulu Island in the Philippines.
â€œWe will coordinate [with the Philippine's government] about the information. However, we will remain alert [in continuing our pursuing],â€ Edward said as quoted by kompas.com.
