(Compass) – Gunmen killed a 25-year-old Hindu woman and injured two Christian men in an attack in Central Sulawesi on October 13. Police said they believed the attack in Poso Pesisir district was committed by the same group who shot Christian lawyer Ferry Silalahi in May and Rev. Susianty Tinulele in July. A second attack in the predominantly Christian village of Jono Oge on October 13 resulted in the deaths of Sakeas Tesa, 54, and Yahya Yuta Jama, 45. Both were Christians. More violence erupted in South Sulawesi two days later, as Muslim villagers protested a law that placed their village under the Christian regency of Mamasa. Approximately 1,000 residents fled North Aralle village to escape sectarian clashes.
