Indonesian teens defy re-education attempt

Punks who had their heads forcibly shaved, return to Aceh's streets in protest against "injustice".



    Dozens of punk rockers in Indonesia were arrested and had their mohawks shaved by security officers last December.

    They were also forced to undergo a so-called re-education programme in Aceh - the only province in Indonesia with Islamic law.

    But now the punks are back on the streets in what they say is their way to protest against "corruption" and "injustice".
