“Investigators from the National Police will also determine who owned the gun used by the FPI, as well as verify the information that their followers will back Rizieq as he is interrogated by the police. We also arranged for the dead men’s remains to be returned to their loved ones.”

The police are also searching for four FPI members who fled from the gunfight. The FPI denied the police version of events, and maintained that they have no firearms.
