Jakarta: Indonesia's most wanted ISIS terrorist was killed in a gunbattle with security forces, a top minister said today, in a victory for the government's counter terrorism campaign that further tightens the vise on a dwindling band of extremists in the jungles of Sulawesi island.

Abu Wardah Santoso was one of two terrorists killed in the shootout on Monday, Coordinating Minister for Security, Political and Legal Affairs Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan told reporters. The other was an extremist known as Mochtar, not Santoso's deputy Basri, as police had initially thought.
