JI has carried out a number of deadly bombings in Indonesia during the 2000s, among them the 2002 Bali bombing that killed 202 people as well as the attacks on the Marriott Hotel and the Australian Embassy that killed dozens more in 2003 and 2004.
Malaysian-born bombmakers Dr. Azahari and Nurdin M. Top masterminded these and other attacks, until they were killed in gunfights against Detachment 88 in 2005 and 2009.
