Indonesian terror suspect lets police in
Investigators said the second suspect, Darno, opened the door to police, the Jakarta Globe reported. Darno or Danu -- many Indonesians use only one name -- allegedly worked with Heru Komarudding on the bombing in April of a police mosque in Cirebon, a port city on the north coast of Java.
"Thank God, today we arrested Danu alias Darno in his house coincidentally," a police officer who refused to be named told the Jakarta Globe. "We actually went to that house for a re-enactment with suspect Heru Komaruddin. Darno, the man we have long searched for, opened the door."
Darno was allegedly involved in throwing bombs into a river to get rid of them after the mosque explosion.
On Thursday, a court sentenced the ringleader of a group of young bombers to six years in prison and his five followers to five years each, the Globe said. They were convicted of a series of attempted bombings and bombings at churches, a mosque and police posts in central Java last year.
Most of the defendants were graduates of the same technical high school in Klaten. The judges cited their youth and their good behavior since they were arrested as reasons for the short sentences.
