Police link Jakarta airport blast to Islamist terror trial

Eleven people were injured, one seriously, when a bomb exploded yesterday in a crowded terminal at the main airport in Jakarta, the Indonesian capital. Hundreds of passengers fled Sukarno Hatta international airport in panic after the explosion, which went off at 6am in the departures hall, between a Kentucky Fried Chicken outlet and a ticket counter for the national carrier, Garuda.
