Bali bomb cleric freed from jail

A Muslim cleric convicted over the 2002 nightclub bombings on Indonesian island Bali, which killed 202 people, has been released from prison in Jakarta
Abu Bakar Ba'asyir was found guilty in March 2005 of conspiracy in connection with the bomb plot, but he was cleared of more serious charges.
Security experts say the cleric is a founding member of a regional Islamic militant group Jemaah Islamiah (JI).
Supporters gathered outside the prison, cheering as he left the building.
"I will continue to fight to uphold the Islamic Sharia," he said, thanking Allah and his lawyers for continuing to support him, the Associated Press reported him as saying.
theres been talk in a few down-under news agencys that the fundies were threatening the Indo Gov with a bombing campaign if thier beloved leader wasnt released.
wonder how long it will be until the militants start ops again now hes free?
bet the tourist bookings to Indonesia are allready falling.
