Folk ask why I live in Indonesia. Here’s why.
The Associated Press reported today that villagers in the South Sulawesi town of Watampone were protesting Tuesday outside the local police station demanding action against a local man they accused of practising black magic when it started raining. The police invited the protesters to shelter inside. Waiting for the storm to pass, some of the protesters wandered into the police armoury, which was unlocked, where they started playing with some explosive material. Some of it fell on the floor. The resulting explosion left four villagers injured. Local police chief Lt. Col. Oya Zulfikar was quoted as saying the four would be questioned when they were discharged from hospital.
