Jakarta Embassy bomber sentenced to death

A second Islamic militant sentenced to death by An Indonesian court on Wednesday for involvement in last year's suicide car bomb attack outside the Australian embassy in Jakarta.

The South Jakarta court found Ahmad Hasan guilty of helping build the bomb and plot the attack with Malaysian fugitive Azahari bin Husin, a senior militant linked to al Qaeda and the alleged mastermind of the bombing that killed 10 Indonesians.

The same court on Tuesday sentenced Rois, also known as Iwan Dharmawan and the leading defendant in custody over the bombing, to death.

The court has jailed three other men for terms of between 42 months and seven years over the car bomb, which tore through the blast-proof fence of the fortified Australian mission, reports Reuters.

According to BBC, the judge, Sobari, said Hasan had sheltered the men believed to have masterminded the attack - Azahari Husin and Noordin Mohamed Top - and helped build the bomb.

The judge also said Hasan surveyed the embassy before the attack and gave Azahari Husin a lift from the scene of the bombing on a motorbike.

Police continue to hunt for Azahari Husin and Noordin Mohamed Top.

Both men are believed to belong to the militant Muslim group Jemaah Islamiah (JI), and Azahari Husin has been accused of masterminding the 2003 Bali bombings.

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.
