A suspect in a deadly McDonald's restaurant bombing told a court on Tuesday that he and other Indonesian Islamic militants had trained at a rebel camp in the southern Philippines.
Suriyadi Masud made the remarks at the trial of Abu Bakar Bashir, the alleged spiritual head of the regional al-Qaida linked terror group Jemaah Islamiyah.
