It seems unlike the rumoured death a while back, this time they actually got him.
Unfortunately as Sidney Jones of ICG says, it is far from over:
"It's a major success for the police but it doesn't mean, unfortunately, that the problem of terrorism is over. It's still unclear how many people were in Noordin's group and there are a number of fugitives still at large who have at least the potential to replace him as the leader of an al Qaeda-like organization."
