Indonesia: February 20, 2005


Despite strident media reports of terrorist threats to foreign aid workers in Aceh, there was no Islamic radical violence against the foreigners.

Islamic radicals are still operating across Indonesia, but not very effectively in the face of counter-terrorist operations. The Indonesian Islamic radicals speak loudly, but have been increasingly reluctant to act in the face of pressure from the people and police.
