Indonesian terror suspect Umar Patek (2nd R) arrives at West Jakarta court on May 21, 2012, accused of being a central figure in the 2002 attacks on two nightclubs on the Indonesian resort island of Bali which killed 202 people, including 88 Australian tourists

Indonesian prosecutors on Monday asked for a life sentence rather than the death penalty for Bali bombmaker Umar Patek, arguing that his remorse in the dock should spare him from a firing squad.
