Indonesian civil service police members demolish a church at the Siompin village in Aceh Singkil, Aceh province, October 19, 2015. When a mob of Muslims swooped on a little church deep in rural Aceh in Indonesia this month, the local police were nowhere to be seen, although they had received warnings of a possible attack. In the wake of the attack, authorities gave in to the demands of the hardline Islamic Defenders Front (FPI) group, and used sledgehammers and axes to demolish 10 other churches in the area that lacked proper permits. The raid, and the aftermath, reflect an increasingly militant attitude towards other faiths in Aceh, where Sharia law now requires non-Muslims to abide by rules forbidding extra-martial sex, homosexual relationships and public displays of affection.

Ozana Rodrigues, the mother of Brian De Mulder, who is convicted of being part of "Sharia4Belgium", talks to the media after the verdict is delivered in a trial of the group in Antwerp February 11, 2015. A Belgian court jailed 32-year-old Fouad Belkacem, the head of Sharia4Belgium, for 12 years on Wednesday, ruling that his Islamist group was a terrorist organisation that brainwashed young men into joining militants in the Middle East. Forty-five members of the group stood trial in the northern city of Antwerp although only seven were present in court on Wednesday. Most of the others are still believed to be in Syria.

Dimitri Bontinck, the father of Jejoen Bontinck, leaves after the verdict is delivered in a trial of 46 people charged with belonging to a terrorist organisation that recruited young men to fight with Islamist militants in Syria, in Antwerp February 11, 2015. A Belgian court jailed Fouad Belkacem, the head of Sharia4Belgium, for 12 years on Wednesday, ruling that his Islamist group was a terrorist organisation that brainwashed young men into joining militants in the Middle East. Much of the prosecution case has relied on the testimony of 20-year-old Jejoen Bontinck, a member of Sharia4Belgium who made national headlines when his father went to Syria to convince him to return. On Wednesday, Judge Luc Potargent gave Bontinck a 40-month suspended sentence. Prosecutors had recommended he be jailed for four years but he finally received a much lighter sentence after providing evidence against his former fellow fighters.
