Video: Battle for Indonesia's teens

Al Jazeera speaks to the father of an Indonesian suicide bomber.

    Despite the recent death of Noordin Mohammed Top, the alleged masterminded of bombings in Bali and the Indonesian capital, authorities are still battling underground organisations seeking to attract young people to their violent ideologies.

    One of the suicide bombers involved in the July attacks on two luxury hotels in Jakarta was Dani Dwee Per-mana, a 17-year-old boy, thought of by those who knew him as quiet, but friendly.

    Nine people died in the Jakarta attacks and another 50 were injured.

    Al-Jazeera's Step Vaessen went to visit the family of the boy who was persuaded to carry a bomb into the Marriott Hotel in Jakarta.
