Indonesia Gives Bali Bombers Last Chance to Appeal Death Sentences

Indonesia's attorney general says three Islamic militants have until the end of this month to appeal their death sentences in the 2002 Bali bombings that killed 202 people.

Attorney General Abdul Rahman Saleh says it is fair to give the bombers until the end of December. But, he said if they do not file an appeal, the execution process will move forward.

Lawyers for the three men have been saying for months that they will file for a case review, but have yet to do so.

If they do file, Indonesian law requires that they produce fresh evidence.

The al-Qaida-linked extremist network Jemaah Islamiyah has been blamed for the 2002 Bali bombings and other attacks in Indonesia.
