    Authorities in Indonesia are hosting what they say is the country's first-ever deradicalisation conference.

    The event, which will bring together counter-terrorism officials and the heads of Indonesia's Islamic boarding schools, will discuss ways of preventing young Indonesians from taking part in violent attacks.

    Max Boon was badly hurt in the 2009 bombing of the Marriott hotel in Jakarta, despite his injuries, he is involved in the deradicalisation programme.
