Indonesia police arrested 14 Christians accused of bludgeoning two Muslim men to death amid anger at the execution of three Roman Catholic militants on Sulawesi island last month, a police officer said Monday. The fish salesmen were killed at an illegal roadblock on the island's main highway and their bodies were buried in a shallow grave nearby, said Central Sulawesi Police Chief Brig. Gen. Badrudin Haiti. The September 22 executions of the three militants for their role in violence against Muslims in sectarian violence in 2000 triggered riots among Christians. Rights groups have raised questions over the fairness of the trial.
