An Indonesian court jailed an extremist for seven and a half years today over an "evil" plot to bomb the Myanmar embassy to avenge the killing of Rohingya.

Achmad Taufiq is one of several men to have gone on trial over the May plot, which came amid anger in Indonesia at persecution of the stateless Rohingya in Myanmar.

Police foiled the plan the night before it was due to take place when they arrested Taufiq in Jakarta carrying a backpack full of homemade bombs while riding a motorbike with another militant.
