September 24, 2007|From Times Wire Reports

An Indonesian militant serving a 20-year prison term for a deadly cafe bombing has escaped from jail in the east of the country, media reports said today.

Jasmin bin Kasau apparently used a rope to climb the walls of Gunung Sari prison on Sulawesi island late Friday, the Jakarta Post and other newspapers reported, quoting prison officials.

Authorities were not immediately available for comment.

Bin Kasau and several other Islamic militants were serving prison terms for the 2004 bombing of a cafe on Sulawesi that killed four people.
