AUSTRALIA: Jemaah Islamiyah outlawed
When Australia's Federal Attorney General Daryl Williams outlawed Jemaah Islamiyah yesterday, he cleared the way for the arrest of any Australian
supporters of the group. The spiritual leader of the group, Abu Bakar Ba'asyir is in custody in Indonesia over a series of church bombings. And

affiliates are in Australia.
