Indonesia: Religious violence erupts in Moluccas
Rioting has broken out in Indonesia's Moluccas islands following the reported killing of three women in the religiously-divided region.
Mobs took to the streets in a predominantly-Muslim quarter of the regional capital, Ambon, and torched a van carrying Christians - one person was burnt to death, police said. The rioting was apparently triggered by news that three Muslim women had been shot dead on a beach on the island of Sapura.
