"Indonesia's best-known radical cleric goes on trial on terrorism charges Monday as the predominantly Muslim nation grapples with a spike in religious tensions. Abu Bakar Bashir, a spiritual leader of the al-Qaida-linked network Jemaah Islamiyah, faces a maximum penalty of death if found guilty of helping fund a new terror cell in Aceh province and mobilizing foot soldiers."
