An Indonesian court on Monday sentenced a Muslim terrorist to life in prison for involvement in two terrorist attacks in the violence-ravaged Maluku province. Ismail Fahmi Yamsehu was found guilty of violating the country's anti-terror law during a trial at the District Court in the Maluku provincial capital of Ambon. The three judges ruled that prosecutors had proven that Yamsehu took part in the attack on a Christian village on Buru Island in May 2004 in which three people died, and in an assault last February on a karaoke bar near Ambon in which two people were killed.
