Indonesian police stepped up security patrols yesterday in the Poso area of Sulawesi, plagued by sectarian violence [Do you understand that sectarian can mean a LOT of things and nothing at the same time!!] for years, after three teenaged Christian girls were beheaded.

Six machete-wielding men attacked the 16 to 19-year-old students as they walked to school on Saturday on the eastern island, police said.

"So far no witness has been questioned and no suspect arrested," a police spokesman, Made Rai, said from Poso, about 1500 kilometres north-east of Jakarta. A fourth student survived and had described the attack.

Mr Rai said about 1000 police, including reinforcements from other parts of the country, were securing the remote regency of Poso, with another 300 officers due to arrive yesterday.

The three headless bodies of the girls, dressed in brown uniforms, were left at the site of the attack. Residents found their heads at separate locations two hours later.
