Indonesia series, part 2

By Clea Broadhurst

The province of Aceh, in the North of Sumatra in Indonesia, has known a long bloody conflict between the Indonesian army and the separatist movement of GAM, until the 2004 tsunami hit the region. The separatists were fighting to obtain their independence, but settled for more autonomy after signing a peace agreement with the Indonesian government. The combatants laid down their arms and set about finding new livelihoods. Some have become tourist guides in the jungle, telling the stories of their time as guerillas. RFI’s Clea Broadhurst followed them in the jungle to learn more.
