Indonesian Court Convicts 2nd Militant for 2005 Bali Bombings


An Indonesian court has convicted a second militant for involvement in suicide bombings on Bali island in 2005.

The court in Bali's capital, Denpasar, sentenced Dwi Widiarto to eight years in prison Thursday.

Another man, Abdul Aziz, received an eight-year sentence Wednesday. Aziz was found guilty of harboring the alleged mastermind of the attacks, Noordin Top, and setting up a Web site showing how to kill foreigners in Indonesia.

The suicide bombings on October first last year killed 20 people and wounded about 150 at three restaurants along southern Bali's coast.

Verdicts are expected later this month for two other defendants on trial for the attacks.
