1st funeral held for Jakarta bomb victims
The first of the Jakarta hotel bombings’ seven victims was buried Monday — just days after he again became a father.
The wife of 38-year-old Evert Mocodompis could not attend his funeral because she gave birth to their second child the day before he was killed, local media reported.
He died while working in the restaurant of the J.W. Marriott hotel on Friday. Family and friends sang hymns and tossed flowers on his grave.
Police continued to piece together bomb fragments, body parts and other clues gathered from the Marriott and the Ritz-Carlton, which was bombed within minutes of Friday’s first blast.
Police have said explosive material recovered at the hotels is “identical” to that used by the Southeast Asian terrorist network in earlier attacks.
An unexploded bomb left in a room of the Marriott resembled devices used in attacks on Bali and one found in a recent raid against the network on an Islamic boarding school in Central Java, national police spokesman told a news conference Sunday.
The culprits in Friday’s attacks that killed seven and wounded 50 are believed to have belonged to Jemaah Islamiyah “because there are similarities in the bombs used,” Maj. Gen. Nanan Sukarna said.
