Trial in Indonesian hotel suicide bombing case begins

An alleged militant is facing trial on charges of harbouring terrorists behind twin suicide hotel bombings that killed seven people and injured more than 50 in Indonesia.

Amir Abdillah is set to appear in South Jakarta District Court on Wednesday on charges of violating the anti-terror law by concealing information and harboring terrorists linked with the attacks.

Abdillah was the first suspect to be arrested a month after the July 17 attacks at the J.W. Marriott and Ritz Carlton hotels. The bombings ended a four-year lull in terrorism in the country.
