Indonesia gives Australian police access to terrorist plans

12:47 2005-11-21 Indonesia has given Australian police access to terrorist plans seized from an al-Qaida-linked Islamic militant group blamed for the deadly Bali bombings, Australian Federal Police chief Commissioner Mick Keelty said Monday.

"We now ... have a better understanding of Jemaah Islamiyah than what we ever had," Keelty told a counterterrorism conference in Sydney. "We now have ... access to some of their plans (and) ... the future plans that they had in place," he added.

Keelty said the plans were highly detailed, featuring sophisticated intelligence and surveillance of targets.

"There is a considerable amount of planning (that) goes into operations that are taking place and we've got to make sure we are equal to those sort of plans by the terrorists," he said.

Keelty did not disclose any of the group's potential targets.
