Indonesia's anti-terrorism squad has killed two suspected militants in an armed raid.

Officials say a member of the elite Detachment 88 police unit was killed and another militant was arrested in the operation in Solo in central Java.

Authorities say the dead militants were in their late teens. They say the men had been linked to recent violent incidents in the area.

Indonesia launched a campaign against militants after the Bali bombings, which happened 10 years ago next month.
