In pictures: Borneo terror
The full horror of recent events in Borneo is starting to emerge. Indonesian police say that indigenous Dayak gangs massacred 118 Madurese migrants on Monday, after police deployed to protect them fled the scene. The tens of thousands of Madurese refugees who fled the savage attacks are starting to tell the outside world their horror stories, after more than a week of ethnic violence left at least 400 Madurese settlers dead.
