U.S. to list JI as terror group
From CNN State Department correspondent Andrea Koppel
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- In a move sure to anger millions of Muslims in Indonesia, the Bush administration will add Indonesia's radical Islamic group Jemaah Islamiya to a list of foreign terrorist organizations this week, a senior administration official told CNN.
CNN has also learned the Indonesian government, the largest Muslim country in the world, has assured the United States it intends to make some significant arrests of JI members in coming days.
Last week Indonesian authorities arrested the group's leader, Abu Bakar Ba'asyir, who instead of showing up for police questioning, checked himself into a hospital.
The United States believes the JI network was behind this month's deadly bomb attack in Bali.
The United States says JI linked to the al Qaeda network and some of its members are known to have trained in al Qaeda camps in Afghanistan.
