East Nusa Tenggara Police arrested three people on Monday for their alleged involvement in the Islamic State (IS) movement.
Acting as healers, the three were arrested on July 31 on suspicion of spreading IS teachings to local communities.
They were identified as Zakarias Kiri and a man with initials HI, both from Alor regency, and Syamsudin Uba from Bekasi.
