World Briefs: Iran threatens attacks on U.S. bases
Question of the Day
TEHRAN — A senior commander in Iran’s powerful Revolutionary has warned that Iran will target U.S. bases in the region should a war with Israel break out.
Gen. Amir Ali Hajizadeh said no Israeli attack can happen without U.S. involvement, making all U.S. military bases a legitimate target.
He said regional states will get involved in any war because Iran will attack U.S. bases in Bahrain, Qatar and Afghanistan.
Gen. Hajizadeh made the comment Sunday during an interview with Iran’s state Al-Alam TV.
The U.S. and its allies believe Iran is trying to develop nuclear weapons, and Israel has suggested it might strike Iran’s nuclear facilities unilaterally. Tehran says its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes.
Police arrest 10 militants, seize homemade bombs
JAKARTA — An elite Indonesian antiterrorism squad has arrested 10 Islamic militants and seized a dozen homemade bombs from a group suspected of planning suicide attacks against security forces and the government, police said Sunday.
Eight suspects were arrested Saturday in Central Java’s Solo town and a ninth in West Kalimantan on the island of Borneo, national police spokesman Brig. Gen. Boy Rafli Amar said.
He said a 10th suspect, Joko Parkit, was arrested Sunday in Solo.
Mr. Parkit’s brother, Eko Joko Supriyanto, was fatally shot by police in 2009 during raids seeking Southeast Asia’s most wanted Islamist militant, Noordin M. Top. Noordin was killed by police a year later.
Gen. Amar said two of those arrested worked to recruit young men and taught at least one member of the group how to make bombs.
