The alleged head of the regional terror group Jemaah Islamiyah is being released from prison on Wednesday, a move that will likely energize Indonesia's radical fringe but not directly lead to a heightened risk of more attacks, experts say. Abu Bakar Bashir is expected to receive a hero's welcome from hundreds of supporters when he walks from Jakarta's Cipinang prison after serving 26 months for giving his blessing to the 2002 Bali nightclub bombings.
