The last at-large suspect in the Bali bombing – the 2002 car bombing at a Bali nightclub that killed 202 people – was reportedly killed during a police raid in Indonesia on Tuesday, though his identity has not been confirmed.

An Indonesian police source told The Times of London that authorities believe they have killed Dulmatin, an explosives expert suspected of helping to build and set off the Bali car bomb. Taught by bombmaker Dr. Azahari Husin and trained in Afghanistan, Dulmatin rose to become one of the leaders of the Al Qaeda-linked Indonesian terrorist group Jemaah Islamiyah, as The Christian Science Monitor has reported.

He had been using a computer at an internet cafe on Jakarta's outskirts for about 15 minutes Tuesday when Detachment 88 raided the Internet shop, according to Australia's Herald Sun.
