bottle of mineral water, a bag, a pot, a bicycle and a
number of other items.

Satan, who have killed, executed and detained the
Mujahideen. We are ready to die for this noble
On the second paper:
bomb is for you all, the kafirs. We will pursue you
even if you run to the clouds. Your death is certain.
Long live the Mujahideen in Indonesia.
The two sheets of paper were found by the police in
the pocket of Ahmad's pants shortly after the police
had secured the scene. The Police are currently trying
to identify if the letter is related to the bombing
act carried out by the subject victim.
