Indonesian cleric sentenced to death over 2016 terror attack: court

Jakarta (AFP) – Indonesian cleric Aman Abdurrahman was sentenced to death Friday over his role in a 2016 Islamic State terror attack that saw a suicide bomber blow himself up at a Jakarta Starbucks cafe.

Heavily armed police guarded his hearing at a Jakarta court — which had earlier found Abdurrahman guilty of masterminding the attack that killed four — as it ordered his execution.
