Innovative comic to teach tolerance

Comic book with a Bali bomber as the unlikely hero is being used in Indonesia as a teaching tool.

    A new comic book with a controversial hero is being used as a teaching tool in Indonesia.

    It features Ali Imron - one of the men behind the Bali bombing of 2002 - and the only one to escape the death sentence.

    The government decided to let him live after he repeatedly said he was sorry for his role in the 2002 attacks.

    Al Jazeera's Step Vaeseen explains how his story is being used to teach tolerance.
