Jakarta, Indonesia (CNN) — A police raid on the outskirts of Jakarta Tuesday may have killed one of Indonesia’s most-wanted terrorists.

Local media cited counterterrorism squad members saying that a shootout in Pamulang, Banten province, killed Dulmatin, a senior member of the al Qaeda-linked terror network Jemaah Islamiyah.

Dulmatin is the suspected mastermind behind the Bali bombings in 2002, which killed 202 people. He is an electronics specialist who has trained in al Qaeda camps in Afghanistan and has a $10 million bounty on his head, according to the U.S. State Department
