INDONESIA - A radical movement out of the shadows

The police conduct an all-out campaign aimed at identifying the tens of thousands of members of the Indonesian Islamic State (NII), an underground radical group, rapporteThe Jakarta Post. Founded in the 1950s, the movement is suddenly out of the shadows following the arrest of one of its former members, Fernando Pepi, suspected of masterminding an attack against the cathedral of Serpong (Java West) but thwarted by the anti-terrorist squad on the eve of Easter.

The NII, which recruits at universities and rural poor, is liable for the loss of students to indoctrinate them.
