On the eve of the 20th anniversary of the Bali bombings, the bombmaker Umar Patek became eligible for parole. 

Patek had his sentence reduced last month with Indonesian authorities claiming he’s been “deradicalised.” Patek has served 11 of his 20-year sentence for mixing chemicals used in the attacks that killed 202 people in 2002.
