Indonesia pulls out 1,300 troops

Krueng Geukueh:

Some 1,300 Indonesian soldiers on Monday pulled out of Aceh province, the first major step by Indonesia to begin implementing a historic peace deal struck last week with separatist rebels. Two battalions from the army’s Kostrad strategic reserve, about 1,300 men, left on board a navy ship from Krueng Geukueh port in North Aceh early on Monday.
