An Indonesian court has sentenced 10 Islamist militants to up to 12 years in jail each.
Mukhtar bin Ibrahim, a member of the Islamic Defenders Front, received a 12-year term Thursday from the Jakarta District Court for attacking foreigners in Aceh province last year.
He was convicted of shooting and injuring a German Red Cross worker, throwing grenades at a U.N. Children's Fund office and shooting at the house of two Americans lecturers.
In another trial, nine militants were sentenced for attending a militant training camp in Aceh that was raided by police in February.
One received nine years in jail, while eight were sentenced to eight years each.
