This article focuses on a Cambodian court that has sentenced the Indonesian Islamic terrorist Hambali, along with three others, to life in jail for planning to carry out a bomb attack in the capital, Phnom Penh. Hambali, who is already in U.S. custody, was convicted in absentia over plans to attack British embassy in Cambodia. Suspected of involvement in the 2002 Bali nightclub bombings, Hambali is a key member of Jemaah Islamiah, the Asian militant terrorist group, which has strong ties with al-Qaeda. Cambodia's short-term political risk rating remains on 61.0, despite the conviction of Hambali in a Phnom Penh court.
