Two Religious Teachers Accused of Raping Boy in Indonesia
Makassar. Police in South Sulawesi’s Gowa district arrested two Koran recital teachers on Wednesday for allegedly sodomizing an 8-year-old student. The suspects, identified only as A.J. and A.H., are alleged to have been caught by a resident in the act of removing the boy’s trousers in their room on the second floor of a mosque on Tuesday night.
They were not reported or handed over to the police. Instead, residents waited until about 2 a.m. on Wednesday, when they rushed into the mosque, reportedly with the aim of handing out mob justice to the suspects.
The two teachers were able to flee the mob and ran to the nearest police station while being chased by the residents. (...)
