Two suspected terrorists arrested by police on Saturday, September 22, 2012 in Solo, Central Java are being linked to the Thorik terrorist network that surrendered to police on September 9, 2012.

Okezone.com reports that the two men arrested were poised to launch terrorist acts linked to  bombs confiscated by police in connection with thei arrest.

According to Okezone.com, the men may have been planning to launch attacks to coincide with the tenth anniversary of the Bali bombing on October 12, 2012. Ali Fauzi, an expert on terrorism, said: “It is very likely that explosions would soon occur, despite the heightened level of police monitoring. Maybe they will take advantage of the opportunity to commemorate the first Bali Bombing.”

Fauzi’s comments were made following the latest arrests in Solo.

October 12, 2012 will mark the tenth anniversary of a bombing of a Bali nightspot that killed 202 people and injured scores of others. The feared attacks, based on recent attacks, could occur anywhere in Indonesia.

He admitted that other “moments” were available to terrorist attacks, but added that it is clear that the bombs being prepared by the men were ready to be exploded in the very near future. “Everything was ready,” said Fauzi, “all that remained was to activate the bombs.”

While the use of the bomb to mark the Bali bombing represents a dramatic moment attractive to terrorists, Fauzi also suggested that any explosive attack in Indonesian could form a part of a coordinated series of worldwide attacks coordinated by al-Qaeda. He warned that law enforcement authorities must anticipate both scenarios.

Finally, Fauzi offered his opinion that despite a number of recent arrests, members of the Thorik network of terrorist may still be at large, based on his belief that the actual size of the group is between 10-20 people with recruitment of new cadres an ongoing effort.
