Indonesian militant faces death sentence for beheading 3 school girls
font size    

A suspected militant went on trial Wednesday for his major role in the beheading of three Christian schoolgirls in Indonesia's Central Sulawesi province and prosecutors charged him with the act of terror punishable by death.

Hasanuddin is accused of plotting and ordering the brutal killings in the restive town of Poso to avenge the deaths of Muslims by Christians during bloody sectarian conflicts in the town in 1999-2002.

The girls were ambushed and beheaded on their way to school last October.

"The primary charge against him carries death penalty," prosecutor Payaman told reporters after the hearing at the Central Jakarta District Court.

Trials for two other suspects were adjourned next week as judges failed to show up.
