JAKARTA, Indonesia —

Indonesian security forces raided suspected terror hideouts Wednesday in central Sulawesi, killing one suspect and arresting two others.

Gunfire was exchange during the early morning raids in the villages of Tambarana and Kalora in Poso district, said Maj. Gen. Suhardi Alius, the national police spokesman.

He added that a gun and seven homemade bombs were confiscated during the raid.

Hundreds of police and soldiers, along with the country's anti-terror squad, have been combing a mountainous jungle area in Poso that is believed to be home to a terrorist training camp.

Earlier in October, two police officers investigating terrorist activities in the area were found dead.

Poso in Central Sulawesi province was a flashpoint for violence between Christians and Muslims that left more than 1,000 dead in 2001 and 2002.

Indonesia has been battling terrorists since the 2002 bombings in Bali that killed 202 people, mostly foreign tourists.
