Indonesia: December 15, 2002


 Despite the peace deal with the Aceh rebels, troops fought rebels in several incidents, leaving six rebels dead, since the December 10 agreement. Each side accuses the other of violating the agreement.  Many army officers feel that they had the rebels on the run when the peace deal was signed. And in the last few months, rebel activity had been disappearing from many parts of Aceh. But the army approach was brutal, and included picking up Aceh men on the least suspicion, and killing them rather than investigating their guilt or innocence.
