JAKARTA (AFP) - Two policemen were found murdered in central Indonesia on Tuesday, national police said, a week after they disappeared while investigating an alleged terrorist training camp.

"The two missing policemen were found dead with their throats slit. They were discovered buried together in a hole," national police spokesman Boy Rafli Amar told reporters.

He said the bodies were discovered in the mountains in central Sulawesi's Poso district, where thousands were killed in outbreaks of sectarian violence between Muslims and Christians between the late 1990s and mid-2000s.

Poso has since been described by police as a hotbed for terrorism.
