Story number 1 for 9 Dec 2002

(Indonesia)–We begin today in Indonesia where police were not ruling out a link between a spate of recent bombings. Authorities believe the terrorist acts are the latest attempt to destabilize Indonesia. Christian Aid Mission’s John Lindner says they’re seeing some developments that may become a concern for their workers. “We have been concerned about the terrorist activity of radical Muslims in Indonesia for quite some time. It hit our shores a year ago, so we can expect more of this.” As to how this plays a role in their work throughout Indonesia, Linder urges prayer: “They are targeting Christians specifically, and more recently, those who are associated with so-called western countries such as U-S and Australia. A document was recently uncovered that was an instruction manual on how to do jihad [holy war] in Indonesia.”
