US quiet on Hambali whereabouts

There is widespread confusion about the whereabouts of Hambali, the most wanted man in Asia.

The United States announced he had been arrested earlier this week but gave no details of where he was taken into custody or where he was currently being held.

Senior Thai officials, including comments attributed to the Defence Minister, said Hambali was arrested in Thailand and then handed over to Indonesia.

But Indonesia's police chief General Da'i Bachtiar says he has no knowledge that Hambali, who is also known as Riduan Isamuddin, is in Indonesian custody.

Other Thai officials have indicated that he was arrested in a joint operation with the United States and is in US custody.
