Indonesia: March 5, 2003


Police arrested 20 air force personnel for attacking a police station and killing a police officer the day before. The air force men were angry that police had earlier arrested one of their men, who was drunk and disorderly. This kind of violence between troops and police has gone on for some time. Many soldiers still think they are above the law. 

In Aceh, the brother of a policeman was sought out and killed by four men (suspected of being rebels.)
