Jail for hiding Bali bombers
A man who hid several Bali bombing suspects while they were on the run has been sentenced to seven years in jail by an Indonesian court.
Mohamad Yunus, 39, was found “legally and convincingly guilty of finding places for and hiding the terrorists,” Judge I Wayan Sugawa told the Denpasar district court. He said that Yunus, a teacher in an Islamic boarding school in East Kalimantan province, had given one of the key Bali bombers, Ali Imron, an island hut to hide in to evade arrest. Yunus’ sentence comes just days before the first anniversary of the Bali attacks, which killed 202 people on the Indonesian island resort on 12 October last year. Many of the dead were Australian tourists, and the Australian Government has organised a series of commemorative events on the island over the weekend. Full Story
