Indonesian authorities trying to trace two commercial pilots believed to support Islamic State say Australian federal police intelligence on the men wasn’t shared with them.

An AFP intelligence report published on website the Intercept on Thursday revealed Tommy Hendratno and Ridwan Agustin were expressing support for Isis on Facebook and posed a security risk. The intelligence report was compiled in March, but Indonesia’s Coordinating Ministry for Politics, Law and Security said it only learned of the men through Thursday’s media reports.

Spokesman Agus Barnas said Jakarta was seeking the AFP report. “We just found this out now, well, just yesterday,” he said on Friday.
Because there had been no tip-off, the men had not been monitored, he said. . .
