Indonesia jails 4 more elite soldiers over prison revenge killings
YOGYAKARTA (AFP) - An Indonesian military tribunal on Friday handed jail terms to four more special forces soldiers for involvement in a plot to storm a prison and murder four inmates in a revenge killing.
One soldier, who drove his comrades to the jail so they could launch the attack, was jailed for 15 months.
The other three, who sought to cover up the crime, were sentenced to four months and 20 days each, but will be released within days as they have been behind bars since April.
It came a day after the court in Yogyakarta, on the main island of Java, handed sentences ranging from 21 months to 11 years to the eight members of the elite Kopassus unit who stormed the prison.
