Indonesians to receive Dutch apology

Families of victims of some some of the worst colonial-era massacres await diplomatic gesture.

    The Dutch government will officially apologise on Thursday for the massacre of Indonesians during colonial occupation.

    Thousands were killed by the Dutch in the war of independence which ended in 1949.
