Indonesian Man Faces Jail For Being Atheist

June 13, 2012 on Al Jazeera English:
An Indonesian man is waiting to hear if he will face a jail term for professing his atheism online.

Alexander Aan, a West Sumatran civil servant was arrested earlier this year for posting on Facebook: "There is no God".

Prosecutors in the case have demanded a prison sentence of three and a half years and the verdict is expected later on Thursday.
