Indonesian Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesman Teuku Faizasyah confirmed that he received word of the operation that netted Rullie.

“The Indonesian Embassy in Manila and the Indonesian Consulate-General in Davao are verifying the details of the operation with the Filipino authorities,” he said.

Philippine troops have intensified a manhunt for would-be bombers in the south after two suicide attacks by women militants killed 15 people and wounded 75 others in Jolo last August.

The US named Abu Sayyaf a terrorist organization because of its links to Al-Qaeda and ISIS. The group is notorious for kidnapping and killing foreigners in Sulu and other parts of Mindanao.
