An Indonesian court has convicted its first suspect in last year's terrorist bombing on the island of Bali - which killed 202 people. The court sentenced Muslim militant Amrozi bin Nurhaysim to death.
The Bali courtroom burst into applause as a judge declared Amrozi bin Nurhaysim guilty of helping carry out the Bali bombing and sentenced him to death by firing squad.
Amrozi, dubbed the smiling bomber, happily cheered when the verdict was read.
The 41 year-old Amrozi had proudly confessed to buying the chemicals and the van used to make a car bomb to as he put it kill Western infidels. The October 12th Bali attack killed 202 mostly foreign tourists.
Police say Amrozi is also a member of Jemaah Islamiyah, a Southeast Asian terrorist network linked to al-Qaida. JI aims to build an Islamic state across Southeast Asia.
Police are investigating whether JI carried out the terrorist bombing Tuesday at the JW Marriot hotel in the Indonesian capital.
