An Indonesian court was scheduled Thursday to deliver its verdict against an Islamic terrorist accused of involvement in 2005 restaurant bombings on Indonesia's resort island of Bali which killed 202 people. Three other terrorists have already been sentenced to between 8 and 18 years in the triple suicide blasts, which killed 20 people and injured more than 100 others. Anif Solcahnudin is accused of taking part in the planning of the attacks. Solcahnudin, 24, told an earlier session of his trial that he offered to be one of the suicide bombers, but was turned down. Indonesian police blame fugitive Malaysian Noordin Mohammad Top for masterminding all the attacks.
