Members of Indonesia's hardline Islamic fringe are planning a rally to protest the killings of 15 alleged Muslim militants by police on the country's conflict-ridden Sulawesi island. Shodiq Ramadhan from the Islamic Forum - an umbrella organization that groups conservative Muslims - said he expected that up to 1,000 people would show up outside the National Human Rights Commission in the capital, Jakarta, to denounce "police brutality against Muslims." Police have come under criticism by Islamic groups and politicians following Monday's raid, but the vice president, other government officials and most of the country's media have supported the operation.
