Schoolgirls beheaded by ninjas

Acording to Jakartass and various news reports:

Six ninja characters have beheaded three Christian schoolgirls in Central Sulawesi in Indonesia.

National police spokesman Aryanto Budiharjo said up to six men in black clothes and masks attacked the students in Bukit Bambu village as they were on their way to class at the Central Sulawesi Christian Church (GKST) high school in Poso.

"The perpetrators wore black attire and veils and they used machetes," he told reporters.

The police said that the information was obtained from a survivor in the incident, who managed to escape the attack but suffered wounds to her face.

President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono ordered the security forces to find the killers.

Jakartass writes:The security forces? Jason Brown analysed the many differing interpretations of the wave of as yet unsolved killings by so-called 'ninjas' of dukuns (village soothsayers) in East Java in 1998...

Were elite politicians working behind the scenes, as some high-profile political leaders claimed... Was it a military exercise designed to create chaos throughout East Java in the wake of Suharto's resignation?...

The London Times had an 'interview' with a captured ninja... "I am just a fisherman from Pulau Seribu (Thousand Islands) near Jakarta," he said. "I was brought here by plane by the men who recruited me. Look at my arm - they gave me seven injections before I was sent out....They had crew-cut hair, that's all."

Crewcut hair?

According to Jakartass:Peter Dale Scott would agree that the military could well be behind the latest grotesque killings. After all, he believes they were responsible for the slaying of over 100 moderate Muslim clerics in 1998....
