JAKARTA (AFP) – A landmark reconciliation meeting between survivors of terror attacks and the perpetrators will be held in Indonesia this month, Jakarta said yesterday. The meeting, announced by chief security minister Wiranto, is being touted as a first for Muslim-majority Indonesia. “This meeting is quite unique – it has not ever happened before,” Wiranto said. People currently incarcerated for terror-related offences and ex-convicts will get the chance to apologise to survivors, he said. The government did not release the names of the militants or the survivors, and it was not clear for how long or where the two groups would meet.
