JAKARTA, Indonesia (AP) — Seven suspected Islamic terrorists have confessed to beheading three Christian schoolgirls on Indonesia’s Sulawesi Island, police said Wednesday.

The seven detained suspects confessed under questioning that they planned and carried out the Oct. 29 beheadings in the Sulawesi town of Poso , police chief Lt. Col. Rudi Sufahriadi told The Associated Press.

Another girl was wounded but spared by the assailants, he said.

Two of the suspects also say they have ties to Noordin Top, regarded as a key leader of the al Qaeda-linked group Jemaah Islamiyah (JI), according to Central Sulawesi police chief Brig. Gen. Oegroseno.
