Muslim Cleric Convicted in Bali Bombings

An Indonesian court convicts Muslim cleric Abu Bakar Bashir of conspiracy in connection with the 2002 attack on two nightclubs in Bali that killed more than 200 people. Judges sentenced the man to 2 1/2 years in prison -- far less than the maximum sentence possible but far more than his supporters wanted.
