Jakarta bomber faces death

An Indonesian court has sentenced to death a key suspect in the 2004 bombing of the Australian embassy in Jakarta. Iwan Darmawan, known as Rois, was found guilty of buying the van and other materials used in the attack.

Rois, who denied the charges, has a week to decide whether to appeal or not.

The attack, which killed 11 people including a suicide bomber, has been blamed on regional militant group Jemaah Islamiah.

The group is alleged to have links to al-Qaeda, which the prosecution said had supplied funds for the attack.

The chief judge, Rocky Panjaitan, said Rois had been found "legally and convincingly guilty" of terrorism and hiding the perpetrators of terrorism.

Rois said he would appeal against the verdict, the first death penalty to be handed down in connection with the case.

Two men suspected of masterminding the attack - Malaysians Azahari Husin and Noordin Mohammed Top - remain at large, CNN reports.

Several years ago, a prominent Indonesian businessman who now resides in Canada, insisted on meeting me in a back room of one of Jakarta's posh restaurants. An avid reader of mine, he 'had something urgent to tell me', after finding out that our paths were going to be crossing in this destroyed and hopelessly polluted Indonesian capital.
