INDONESIA - Two Protestant churches torched, possibly in retaliation for the burning of mosque in Papua [AN]

A church in Purworejo and a prayer house in Bantul (Yogyakarta), central Java, are attacked in incidents connected to an arson attack against a small mosque in Papua that killed one person and wounded 12 others. For an Indonesian priest, a “thorough investigation” is needed to find the culprits and defuse sectarian tensions.
