The Christian Broadcast Network website reports today (September 13, 2010) that Indonesia's president has ordered law enforcement authorities in the Islamic country to arrest the attackers who stabbed a Christian on his way to church and beat a female minister in the head with a wooden plank after she tried to help him.
Islamic hardliners are under suspicion, because of previous attacks.
President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono has been widely criticized for failing to crack down on Muslim Extremists. He called on police to investigate those responsible for yesterday's attacks.
"We've questioned nine witnesses and have already identified the perpetrators," said local detective, Capt. Ade Arie. The two Christians' injuries were not considered to be life-threatening.
