Bali bomb-maker jailed for 20 years

  • An Indonesian court has convicted a militant of making explosives used in the 2002 Bali bombings and sentenced him to 20 years in prison.

    Umar Patek was found guilty of murder and bomb-making in connection with the attacks, which killed more than 200 people, mostly foreigners.
