JAKARTA, Oct. 5 (Xinhua) -- Indonesia's anti-terror police have arrested four suspected terrorists with alleged ties to the Al-Qaeda-affiliated militant network Jemaah Islamiyah (JI), the national police said.

National Police spokesperson Argo Yuwono said in a statement on Monday that the suspects were arrested separately in the West Java province, in places including the Bekasi city located on the eastern border of the capital Jakarta.

The police's anti-terror squad has also seized books about jihadism and improvised firearms and sharp weapons in arresting the four suspects.

The Indonesia-based extremist Jemaah Islamiyah group was behind the 2002 Bali bombings which killed more than 200 people on the Indonesian holiday island. It was declared an illegal organization in 2018. Enditem
