Police in Indonesia have arrested a man linked to a planned terrorist attack on the popular tourist island of Bali. He is understood to be linked to Islamic State (Isis) and to a suicide bombing attack on a police station in the country, carried out in July 2016.

The man, who is being referred to only as DA, was arrested on 15 August in the central province of Lampung in connection with the suicide attack at a police precinct in the eastern city of Surakarta, in which Nur Rohman killed himself and injured one officer.

According to an Indonesian police spokesperson, DA had helped transport the explosives used in the July attack from his home in Lampung on Sumatra, to Surakarta (also known as Solo), on the island of Java.

Agus Rianto also said that their investigation seems to have uncovered details of a plot to attack Bali.

In a sweep of DA's house earlier this month, Indonesian investigators allegedly discovered iron shrapnel, cable and PVC pipe, with white powder discovered at the internet cafe where he works, which Riano said was triacetone triperoxide, an explosive substance also used in the 2015 Paris attacks.

The man is believed to be a member of an Indonesian militant group run by Bahrun Naim from Syria, which is linked to Isis (Daesh). Naim is alleged to have paid Rp5,000,000 (£290) to people to help carry out the attacks.

Five men linked to Naim were arrested this month for their parts in a failed rocket attack on Singapore from a nearby island, while an Indonesian teenager was sent to prison for five years in June for taking part in an IS plan to attack churches and Buddhist temples on Indonesia's Independence Day in 2015. The boy, who had been planning to attack Surakarta, is thought to have been working with Naim.
