Militants jailed for Bali attacks

Four men were charged over the 2005 attacks
An Indonesian court has sentenced two Islamic militants to jail for their part in last year's Bali bombings.

Mohammad Cholily, 28, was found guilty of supplying equipment used in the attacks after studying bomb making with Malaysian Azahari Husin.

Dwi Widyarto, 33, was jailed for eight years for helping transfer onto disc a video of Noordin Mohammad Top, the plot's alleged mastermind.

The triple suicide bomb attack killed 20 people and left 200 injured.

Earlier this week, another man, Abdul Aziz, was jailed for eight years for sheltering Malaysian-born Noordin Top, who remains at large.

The verdict on a fourth and final suspect, Anif Solchanudin, is due to be handed down shortly.

The October 2005 attacks were the second major bombing on the resort island.

In 2002, more than 200 people died in the bombing of a bar and nightclub in Bali.

The Indonesian government blamed the regional Islamist militant group, Jemaah Islamiah, for both attacks.

Noordin Top is wanted in connection with both attacks, as well as a string of others in Indonesia.

Previously believed to be one of al-Qaeda-linked Jemaah Islamiah's key financiers and recruiters, analysts now think Noordin may have broken away to form a new militant group.

The man thought to have been his closest ally, bomb maker Azahari Husin, was killed during a police raid in November 2005, but successive attempts to locate Noordin have failed.
