 Gary Dean - Ethno-Religious Conflict in Maluku
Maluku -- an archipelago known as the "Spice Islands" in times past -- is a province of Indonesia, comprising about 1,000 islands in the eastern part of the nation, with a population of a little over two million people.

Given what has occurred in Maluku over the past 18 months, with all the death, savagery, destruction, fear, suspicion and complete breakdown in trust, it seems that a resolution of the conflict will be extraordinarily difficult to achieve.
