Extremist Violence Escalates in Indonesia

A ship filled with Indonesians seeking refuge from violence caused by Muslim extremists in the Malaku islands sank Thursday in Eastern Indonesia, killing a large number of the 492 people on board. The refugees came from Duma, a Christian village in the country that was targeted by Muslim extremists. International relief organizations are still unable to provide assistance due to danger posed by extremists.
