Moderate Muslim Nation Of Indonesia Update: Ambon, more Muslim-Christian violence: 16 injured, houses burnt

Jakarta (AsiaNews) - 16 people were wounded, one from a gunshot wound to the chest, in sectarian violence in the city of Ambon, the capital of the Moluccas. At dawn yesterday two opposing factions, separated by a road, clashed in a bitter battle at the end of which some houses were set on fire. Local sources said that the violence began late in the evening of December 12, with an exchange of insults and the throwing of fire bombs between the two opposing camps. Overnight, the situation degenerated to the point of urban warfare, only quelled by police intervention. Officers seized several weapons including Molotov cocktails and "traditional" arrows, machetes and spears

 "The clashes were triggered by the
accidental death of a Muslim taxi driver. The rumor spread among the
Islamic community that he had been attacked by Christians and, in street
battles that ensued, nine people were killed and 60 others injured."The trouble didn't start with the death. It started with the lies and the perpetual state of anger.
