Denmark Tells Danish Citizens to Leave Indonesia

Feb 12th, 2006, in News, by

In the wake of withdrawing its embassy staff in Jakarta the Danish foreign ministry has now ordered all Danes in Indonesia to leave the country immediately.

There is concrete information that indicates that an extremist group actively will seek out Danes in protest of the publication of the Muhammad drawings.

All Danish in Indonesia were told to leave the country forthwith because they were facing "a significant and imminent danger", adding that the threat was focused on the eastern part of the island of Java, but could spread to other parts of the country, including Bali.

According to Din Syamsuddin, the chairman of the Muhammadiyah organisation, most of the protests in Indonesia against the cartoons are being orchestrated by a "a certain person", although he did not name him but stated that domestic political factors are the motivating reason.
