Ten Islamic terrorists jailed for suicide bombings on Bali that killed more than 220 people - many of them foreign tourists - had several months shaved off their sentences Friday to mark Indonesia's Independence Day. It is a local tradition to cut jail terms on holidays, but the decision was likely to anger countries that lost citizens in the 2002 and 2005 attacks on the resort island's crowded nightclubs and restaurants. The father of one of the victims lambasted the "blatant disregard" for those who died.
