Seemingly unfazed at being ousted from the Asian Athletics Association, scam-tainted Suresh Kalmadi on Monday said losing the presidential re-election bid to Qatar’s Dahlan Jumaan Al-Hamad has actually given him a chance to work at the “grassroots” level.
“I have no issues today and I congratulate Mr Al-Hamad for being elected as President. I am rather relieved that I will be able to work at the grassroots level in athletics,” Mr. Kalmadi said after losing the vote during the ongoing AAA Congress in Pune.

Alleged terrorist Patek confesses to preparing explosives for Bali bombings

Jakarta - Alleged terrorist Umar Patek has admitted to preparing explosives used for the 2002 Bali bombings, but denied knowing the full extent of the plan that killed 202 people.

Patek's lawyer has informed the West Jakarta District Court that he accepts mixing the explosives used in the Bali bombings.

Patek is charged with planned mass murder for his alleged role in the Bali bombings and could be sentenced to death, if convicted.

Two nightclubs in the popular tourist area of Kuta were targeted during the bombings ten years ago.

"The defendant was only invited by Imam Samudra to come and mix the bomb material," The Herald Sun quoted Ainal, Patek's lawyer, as saying in the court.

"There is no legal argument that could prove the defendant deliberately participated in the plan to take lives. The person who carried the bombs to be exploded was Ali Imron," he said.

Samudra was executed in 2008 for his role in the Bali bombings, along with Amrozi and Ali Ghufron.

He was silent throughout the court proceedings. The trial, which will resume on February 27, is expected to last more than four months, as prosecutors present evidence from 86 witnesses.
