    Indonesian minister admits troops raped and tortured Papuans

    The Sydney Morning Herald reports that the Indonesian defence minister has admitted that the country's troops have raped and tortured Papuans:

    "I grant that there have been incidents of some brutality and torture and rape involving some of our troops, but there has been a tendency to blanket all of this into a notion that all of these efforts are systematic and institutional." The 43 Papuans, who included independence activists, arrived in northern Australia last month after a five-day voyage. They said they had been persecuted in Papua and would be killed if they returned.
