The Indonesian navy has arrested three former separatist rebels for pirating ships carrying aid for tsunami survivors in the country's far-west Aceh province, a senior commanding officer said on Wednesday.
The three men, from two different groups, were caught in the north Aceh city of Lhokseumawe on July 18, two days after their latest operation, Rear Admiral Moekhlas Sidik, chief of the Indonesian Navy's Western Fleet, told reporters.
"We are still on alert for more action from their groups because they use weapons like rifles and grenade launchers in their operations," Sidik said.
