Indonesian police kill two suspected militants in raid

JAKARTA (AP) — Members of Indonesia’s anti-terrorism police squad yesterday shot and killed two suspected militants who they believe were connected to a deadly suicide attack in the southern Philippines, and arrested 18 others, officials said.

The two men, Muhammad Rizaldy, 46, and his son-in-law, Sanjai Ajis, 23, were fatally shot by police after they resisted arrest by wielding a machete and an air-rifle during a raid at a house in Makassar, the capital of South Sulawesi province, said National Police spokesperson Ahmad Ramadhan.
