Not only Umar Patek and Heru Kuncoro are in the Philippines.
Indonesian officials have asked the Philippine authorities to track down an Indonesian fugitive wanted in connection with several beheadings who is now helping to train militants in an insurgency-wrecked Philippine region, security officials said yesterday.
Sanusi, like many Indonesians using only one name, has been monitored in Mindanao, two Philippine intelligence officials said.
He fled to the region after being accused of ordering militants in 2007 to behead three people in the eastern Indonesian town of Poso, where Islamist militants had launched a series of bloody attacks on Christians and government workers.
Sanusi has emerged as a key operative of Jemaah Islamiyah.
He is believed to have helped fund and organise religious and combat training for new Indonesian militant recruits in Mindanao, where local guerrillas are fighting to create an independent Muslim state.
