Indonesian Christians under attack

Christians claim growing threat to their religious freedom in mainly Muslim nation.

    Violent attacks against Christians in Indonesia have forced the closure of 20 churches in recent months, testing the fragile religious balance in predominantly-Muslim nation.

    But the government denies the incidents are a sign of growing religious intolerance, putting the blame on politics and regional elections instead.
