A man has blown himself up at a police station on Indonesia’s main island of Java, killing an officer and wounding seven people in what appeared to be the latest in a string of suicide attacks blamed on Muslim militants. Police say the attacker entered the police station in Bandung city and detonated explosives as police were lining up for a morning assembly. Police say the man brought two bombs but one apparently failed to explode and was defused. A paper was found taped to the perpetrator’s motorbike with the words, “Criminal code is the law of infidels, let’s fight the satanic law enforcers.” Indonesia’s Parliament on Tuesday passed a new criminal code that bans sex outside of marriage and insulting the president and state institutions.

A jury in Maine has awarded a former state trooper $300,000 after determining the state police wrongly retaliated when he raised concerns about its intelligence gathering work. George Loder filed a whistleblower lawsuit claiming he was reassigned and then denied a transfer after he took his concerns about the Maine Intelligence Analysis Center to his superiors. Loder said the center had gathered intelligence on power line protesters, gun buyers and others who had committed no crime. The Bangor Daily News reported the jury deliberated for more than five hours Friday before finding in Loder's favor. State police had defended the intelligence work and denied that any retaliation occurred.
