Ambon’s Problems Ignored, Report Says | The Jakarta Globe

Five months after a deadly riot erupted in Ambon, Maluku, tensions still run high among residents as officials have failed to address the root case of the problems, a report released by the International Crisis Group said on Tuesday.

Six people were killed and some 750 homes vandalized during a clash on Sep. 11, sparked by the death of a Muslim motorcycle taxi driver in a Christian area. The riot opened old wounds in a city that saw sectarian conflicts kill thousands from 1999 and 2002.

In mid-December, violence was again triggered by the unexplained death of a Christian public transport driver.
