Bail raids: 'Weapons and ammunition were found'

Indonesian police have shot dead five suspected militants on the island of Bali, according to officials.

The men, killed in two raids on Sunday, were planning to target several locations in Bali, the chief of Indonesia's anti-terror unit told the BBC.

Officers also seized firearms and ammunition on the island, where a bombing in 2002 killed more than 200.

The five are believed to be linked to the Jemaah Islamiah, a regional group that is linked to al-Qaeda.

The BBC's Karishma Vaswani reports.
