Indonesian Court Sentences Another in Foiled Burma Embassy Bomb Plot

14 January 2014

A court has sentenced an Indonesian man to six years in prison for his role in a plot to bomb the Burma Embassy in Jakarta, Xinhua reports. Rokhadi, also known as Abu Jannah, is one of at least three Indonesians charged in connection with the plot, which came to light in early May and is believed to have targeted the embassy to avenge the killing of Rohingya Muslims in Burma. Achmad Taufik was sentenced last week to 7.5 years for his role in the planned bombing, and the self-confessed mastermind of the plot, Sigit Indrajit, will be sentenced next week.
