Indonesian Confesses to Burma Embassy Bomb Plot, Says ‘Still at War’
5 December 2013
A man accused of plotting to bomb the Burma Embassy in Jakarta has confessed to the crime, saying the planned attack “was a warning to Myanmar as well as others who treat Muslims as they please,” AFP quoted the suspect as saying. “I am still at war—as long as there is oppression of Muslims,” Sigit Indrajid told a Jakarta court on Thursday. The suspect and four others were arrested in May. The targeting of the embassy is believed to be linked to religious violence in Burma that began in June 2012 and has claimed more than 200 lives, mostly Muslims.
