From the Jakarta Post,Pekanbaru, Sun, September 13 2015,

Nineteen flights were canceled at Sultan Syarif Kasim II Airport in Pekanbaru, Riau, on Sunday because of thick haze, airport authorities have said.

“Garuda Indonesia, Lion Air, Sriwijaya and Fire Fly have informed us of the cancellation of their flights for today,” said the airport’s duty manager Hasnan as quoted by Antara.

The four airlines, Hasnan said, which had cancelled their flights since Saturday, served both domestic and international routes, including from Pekanbaru to Jakarta, Medan and Kuala Lumpur.

He added that 68 flights should have departed from and arrived at Sultan Syarif Kasim II Airport, Pekanbaru, on Sunday, but as of noon, no flight activity had taken place, with visibility reduced to between 300 and 500 meters on Sunday morning. At around 10 a.m., visibility increased to around 1,000 meters.

Citing data provided by the airport’s information center, Hasnan said two airlines had informed the authorities that their flights would be ready for landing despite limited visibility of around 1,000 meters. The flights in question were an AirAsia flight from Kuala Lumpur and a Citilink flight from Batam.

Prison Warden Admits ‘Blunder’ After Terror Convict’s Wife Discovered in Cell

Jakarta. Officials at a prison in East Java have been left red-faced after a woman believed to be the wife of a terrorist convict managed to sneak into his cell and spend an undisclosed number of days inside.

Heri Prasetyo, the warden of Porong Penitentiary in Sidoarjo, outside Surabaya, said over the weekend that guards found the woman hiding in the toilet of the cell occupied by Abdullah Ummamity, who is serving a life sentence for terrorism-related offenses.

Officers made the discovery in the early hours of Friday, as they were preparing to transfer Ummamity and three other terror convicts to other prisons because of their history of radicalizing fellow inmates at Porong. Guards had previously found bomb-making equipment, books on jihad and Islamic State flags in the men’s cells.

It remains unclear how they managed to obtain bomb-making material inside a prison.

Heri said the woman, who he declined to name, appeared to have stayed in Ummamity’s cell for “more than a day,” although he refused to give a specific number.

He acknowledged the “blunder” on the part of the prison authorities, but noted that there were only 17 guards to watch a prison population of 1,193.

Heri said his office was working with the East Java Police to determine how the woman was able to sneak into the prison, and whether any prison officials were complicit in the act.

Police have questioned the woman and sent her back to her house near the prison, which she has been renting since 2007, when Ummamity was jailed.
