Bali bombers’ spiritual leader Abu Bakar Bashir hospitalised in Indonesia

A radical Islamic cleric who was the spiritual leader of the Bali bombers and a force behind a jihadist training camp raided in 2010 has been transferred from prison to a Jakarta hospital.
Guarded by four paramilitary police officers, the ailing white-bearded Abu Bakar Bashir arrived at the hospital in Indonesia’s capital on Thursday morning.
He was sentenced to 15 years in prison in 2011 for supporting a military-style training camp for militants that was uncovered the year before.
