Rusman Gunawan

Hambali's brother has been sentenced to 4 years in prison for his role in a bombing attack.

The brother of an alleged South East Asian militant leader has been found guilty of helping to finance a bomb attack in Jakarta last year.

Rusman Gunawan, the brother of militant suspect Hambali, was given a four year jail term by a Jakarta court.

Judge Adullah Sidiq said Gunawan had sent US$30,000 to a militant group in Indonesia from his base in Pakistan.

He said some of the money was used to fund the 2003 J W Marriott hotel bombing in Jakarta.

Twelve people died in the attack, including a suicide bomber.

"The defendant has been found guilty of helping others to acts of terrorism, and therefore we sentence him to four years in jail," said Mr Sidiq.
