JAKARTA, June 13 (Xinhua) -- A senior Indonesian police officer said on Monday that they had arrested 14 terrorist suspects across the country in the last few days, allegedly planned a ploy to poison police, local media reported here.

Boy Rafly Amar, a spokesperson at the Indonesian police headquarters said that all of those suspects were arrested in Central Sulawesi, East Kalimantan, Central Java, West Java provinces and in the capital city of Jakarta since Thursday to Sunday last week.

He said that those suspects were the operatives of a terror organization centered in Poso, Central Kalimantan province, as quoted by the Kompas.com.
