An Indonesian court on Wednesday sentenced an Islamic militant to 12 years in prison for providing a gun to a member of a Southeast Asian terrorist network. Joko Wibowo, alias Abu Sayaf, was convicted by a regional court in Central Java of violating anti-terror laws by giving a semiautomatic pistol to a member of Jemaah Islamiyah for military training. The three-member panel of judges said Wibowo gave the revolver and 20 bullets to Subur Sugiarto, a main aide to Noordin Top, a Malaysian fugitive accused of being a key leader of the group.
