New civil war haunts Ambon

PREMIUM For President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, the memory of the three-year civil war in Maluku that killed thousands of victims and displaced hundreds of thousands of people is still a very vivid nightmare.

Sectarian violence last broke out in Ambon in 1999, and quickly spread to adjacent areas. Thousands of people in the surrounding area either perished or fled to neighboring islands.
