Jakarta: The Special Detachment 88 (Densus 88), the National Police's counterterrorism special unit, reportedly arrested 13 suspected terrorists in Riau Province.
"As many as 13 terror suspects were arrested in Riau," said National Police spokesperson Senior Commissioner Ahmad Ramadhan here on Monday.
However, Ramadhan is still unable to reveal the identity of the 13 suspected terrorists.
"Densus 88 is still investigating the case," he added.
Previously, Densus 88 arrested 12 terror suspects who planned to attack several locations in Merauke Regency, Papua Province.
"When Densus 88 conducts an operation in a region, terrorists try to leave the region," said National Police spokesman Brigadier General Rusdi Hartono here last week.
"Some terrorists left Makassar and went to Merauke," he stated.
