Islamist Militant Sentenced in Hotel Attacks


An Indonesian court sentenced an Islamist militant to eight years in prison on Monday for his involvement in last year’s deadly bombings of two luxury hotels in Jakarta and a plot to assassinate the country’s president.

Amir Abdillah was found guilty of violating the antiterror law by helping a splinter group of the terror network Jemaah Islamiyah plans the suicide bombings that killed seven people and wounded more than 50.
Mr. Abdillah, 35, who uses several aliases, was also found to have hidden information about a foiled plot to kill President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono.
