Cleric Won't Be Charged in Bali Bombings

Police won’t charge militant cleric Abu Bakar Bashir in the 2002 Bali bombings, officials said Wednesday, after Indonesia’s constitutional court curbed the use of a tough anti-terror law. Prosecutors still plan to charge Bashir with heading Jemaah Islamiyah, the al-Qaida linked terror group blamed for Oct. 12, 2002 Bali bombings, Detective Chief Suyitno Landung said.
