Indon President SBY has condemned the beheading of 3 teenage Christian girls in the Sulawesi town of Poso. He said:
"In the holy month of Ramadhan, we are again shocked by a sadistic crime in Poso that has now claimed the lives of three school students. I condemn this barbarous killing, whoever the perpetrators are and whatever their motives."
Police said up to six men in black clothes and masks used machetes to attack the students in Bukit Bambu village, while the teenagers were on their way to class. How f**king brave.
There was one survivor, Noviana Malewa, who suffered wounds to her face, and is currently in intensive care. The victims were 15 year old Yarni Sambue, 16 year old Interesia Morangke and 19 year old Alfita Paulina.
One of the girls’ heads was placed near a church. Is there no respect at all for a holy place?
The Poso area has been wrecked by inter-religious violence with sporadic bomb attacks and assassinations. Police believed that the bombings, which killed 22 people were the work of Jemaah Islamiyah (JI) militants, the same Islamist group that bombed Bali twice.
