Bali Bombers Get Stay of Execution

From Times Wire Reports

Indonesia delayed the executions of three Islamic militants convicted in the Bali bombings that killed 202 people four years ago, after the condemned men said they wanted to file a final appeal, officials said.

Amrozi Nurhasyim, Ali Gufron and Imam Samudra were among more than 30 people convicted in the 2002 nightclub bombings on the resort island, which officials say were carried out by the Al Qaeda-linked Jemaah Islamiah terrorist group.

They confessed but last month authorized lawyers to file a final appeal, averting today’s planned execution.
