Toward a radical middle

a time for fear
Saturday, July 05, 2003  
Mahmood Malik, "prime minister" of GAM has his own figures concerning the war in Aceh. He reckons it goes something like this:
- 1000 dead civilians
- 500 dead Indonesian soldiers
- 100 dead GAM fighters

The Indonesian military are now saying:
- 325 dead rebels. This to add to a total of 680 arrested/surrenderd GAM fighters. Don't know how this tallies with an earlier estimate I quoted, which claimed that about 4500 GAM fighters had been lost. Figures flying around!
- 36 dead soldiers/policemen
- 48, 000 refugees.

And on it goes. Inexorably.
