al Qaeda in the Malay Archipelago

Noordin M. Top, who came from Malaysia to spread terror in the country, was hunted for 9 years but always escaped.  Born in Malaysia 41 years ago, Noordin studied and taught at Madrasah Lukmanul, which were attended by Ali Ghufron, Amrozi, and Imam Samudra, the Bali bombers.  When the Malaysian government began huning for frontman Jemaah Islamiyah, Noordin and bomb-maker Azahari fled to Indonesia Riau. Azahari was adept at assembling bombs, and Noordin was an expert recruiting suicide bombers. After a long hunt, was Azahari killed during a siege by the Special Detachment 88 Anti-terror team. A year later, Noordin was almost captured  and allegedly killed. After nine years of being hunted he was finally killed in a raid in Solo, Central Java on September 17, 2009.VideoVideo: 2009 Noordin M. Top with Doctor Azahari

Groups and individuals included in TRAC's database range from actual perpetrators of social or political violence to more passive groups that support or condone (perhaps unwittingly) such violence. The spectrum of violence represented by these groups is vast, from Jihadists who bomb train stations to financial institutions that transfer funds. Some groups that originally engaged in violence but have since become legitimate political parties are included to provide historical perspective. TRAC is in no way attempting to determine whether groups or individuals are terrorists -- only to convey reported information about their activities and official State status. While TRAC attempts to ensure the accuracy of its TRAC database, the entries in the database are from numerous different sources. Hence, TRAC cannot and does not warrant the accuracy of the entries in its database. The editors of TRAC may modify these entries at any time and welcome comments and suggested corrections or additions.  Please write [email protected] or hit the "SUBMIT ADDITIONS" button on the page of the group profile about which you wish to comment.

TRAC is a unique, comprehensive resource for the study of political violence of all kinds.
