Former rebels in Indonesia's Aceh province successfully ended the third round of a weapons handover on Tuesday after struggling to surrender enough arms that met the criteria of international peace monitors...
Under the August 15 peace deal, the Free Aceh Movement (GAM) has to give up 840 functional weapons to monitors by the year-end during four phases. In turn, Indonesia, which had 30,000 soldiers and 15,000 policemen in Aceh before the truce, is required to trim its forces to no more than 14,700 soldiers and 9,100 police.
