Suspected terrorists killed in shootout with police in Bali

Five suspected terrorists were killed Sunday in a shootout with police in Bali, a spokesman for Indonesia's National Police said Monday.

The suspects were planning to rob several jewelry stores to help fund their alleged terror plots, and planned on making at least two thefts Sunday night, said Senior Commander Boy Rafli Amar of the National Police.

Indonesia's counter-terrorism police, who had been following the suspects for a month, conducted two raids on hotels in the Denpasar area of Bali on Sunday night. Gunfire was exchanged before the suspected terrorists were killed, Amar said. Two guns and ammunition were recovered from the two sites, he said.

    They allways say, "Suspected terrorists killed." What happens if their wrong about them being terrorists ? They say,
    " Oh, I'm sorry I killed you. I thought you were someone else. My mistake."

    A couple of local Indonesian police sources said they really weren't terrorists. Just some local crooks who made their living doing robberies. Usually five terrorists have more than two pistols to do dirty work with and don't hang out in brothels. Oh well, it's a war on terrorism.
