JAKARTA, July 19 (Xinhua) -- Indonesian police detectives admitted that they had not made any significant progress in the investigation and were still busy collecting clues and evidence at the blast sites, the Jakarta Post reported on Sunday.
"All I know is that right now we're a bit stuck in our investigation. I hope this is not for long," said an unnamed field officer.
Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono was scheduled to brief the press on Saturday upon visiting the JW Marriott hotel and the Ritz Carlton hotel that were damaged by Friday's bombings, but left without speaking publicly.
"There are indications that the explosive used in Friday's bombings are similar to those found in Cilacap and those used in the Bali Bombings," said the National Police spokesman Nanan Sukarna, indicating that the attacks were perpetrated by the Jamaah Islamiyah terror network.
"But, that's what we found in the field. We are still trying to piece together the whole puzzle," Nanan said.
Earlier this month, Indonesia's counter-terrorist squad Densus 88 uncovered bomb-making materials in the backyard of a house belonging to fugitive terror suspect Bahrudin in Cilacap, Central Java. A witness said that the materials include sulfur powder, wires wrapped in plastic and a number of books and VCDs about jihad.
Rumors are also circulating that the 1.5 million U.S. dollars robbery of an armored van on a Jakarta toll road last week was also done by terrorists, who were seeking money for the families of the two suicide bombers.
Jakarta police spokesman Chrysnanda confirmed several suspects have been arrested in connection with the robbery but did not confirm the relation between this case and the two blasts.
Meanwhile, Jakarta Governo Fauzi Bowo said he had instructed all of Jakarta's majors, district and sub-district heads, as well as communication unit and neighborhood unit chiefs to remain alert in order to detect the possible terrorist safe houses.
The perpetrators of the 2003 JW Marriott Bombing moved form one rented house to another to avoid police detection as they planned and prepared for their attacks.

tarr mate...nukes still missing-maybe we need Jack Bauer on the case :geek:
Good site btw, after reading this article it reminds me of some entrepreneurs daily recreational drug trade..how hard could it be to buy a pound of plutonium..! yikez
"Tonight's FRONTLINE contribution follows the trail of the "Loose Nukes," led by producer Sherry Jones, as she investigates the threat of nuclear smuggling in the post-Cold War world..."
"...Her investigation begins in 1994, when 800 milligrams of bomb-grade uranium was purchased in Landshut, Germany, by an undercover police agent. It goes on to Munich, where three-quarters of a pound of plutonium was seized in a sting operation and then on to Prague for the mother lode, where three men were arrested with six pounds of uranium in their possession.
Where did all this deadly material come from? The Soviet Union, before its breakup, had the largest stockpile of nuclear explosives of any nation in history, more than 1,400 metric tons of the stuff.
With the new freedom that came with the Soviet dissolution, the opportunities to steal this stash was comparatively easy. Jones determines that's exactly what a loose cannon of a Russian engineer did.
Jones follows the trail of the material and discovers that the Prague smuggler, who came from Russia was supplied with the uranium by a man named Eduard Baranov. And although the Russian and Czech police did not seem to know where to find this middleman, she manages to dig up Baranov, with the help of a reporter from Izvestia, and to pin down his story of where the uranium came from and where he disposed of it.
'Moscow,' Jones concludes, 'is still silent' despite the thefts and the international trail she has uncovered. 'That leaves us with the frightening possibility that other nuclear material (in the former Soviet Union arsenal) might have been stolen as well.'
Yeah, as they say in the TV spook shows, 'Be afraid. Be very afraid.' This is the real thing."
