Islamic sect attacked in Indonesia

Murder of three members of Ahmadiyah minority focuses attention on legal restrictions on group.

    Video footage has emerged of a gang of Muslim men beating to death three members of the Ahmadiyah sect in Indonesia.

    Rights groups and the Indonesian government have condemned the killings, but some critics say a three-year-old law banning Ahmadis from spreading their faith incited the violence.
