Bali bomb-maker sentenced to 20 years in prison

An Indonesian court has convicted a militant of making explosives used in the deadly 2002 Bali bombings and sentenced him to 20 years in jail.

Umar Patek was found guilty of murder and bomb-making in connection with the Bali attacks, which killed more than 200 people, mostly foreigners.

He admitted helping mix chemicals, but said he was not involved beyond that.

Prosecutors did not ask for the death penalty after Patek apologised to victims and their families.
