Video Captures Bali Suicide Bomber Moments Before Blast

BALI, Indonesia -- Southeast Asia's two most-wanted men appear to have masterminded the near-simultaneous suicide attacks on three crowded restaurants on the Indonesian resort island of Bali, officials said today, as a chilling video showed a suspected bomber strolling past dining customers moments before one of the blasts.
Twenty-six people were killed and another 100 wounded in the Saturday night carnage.
The Al-Qaeda-linked Malaysian fugitives, who were allegedly behind twin nightclub bombings on the same tropical island in 2002, and two other attacks in the capital Jakarta in 2003 and 2004, appear to have struck again, said Maj. Gen. Ansyaad Mbai, a top Indonesian anti-terror official.
"The modus operandi of Saturday's attacks is the same," he said, adding that Azahari bin Husin and Noordin Mohamed Top were not among the suspected bombers, whose decapitated remains were found at the scenes. All three were believed to be fitted with explosive belts, police say.
