AN ETHNIC CHINESE INDONESIAN SEEKS REFUGE FROM VIOLENCE IN KALIMANTAN PROVINCE.
An ethnic-Chinese Indonesian woman holds her children as she takes refuge inside a police station from the violence outside between local residents and Madurese migrants in Pontianak, in West Kalimantan province June 27, 2001. Hundreds of Madurese refugees in Indonesia's strife-torn West Kalimantan province refuse to be evacuated from their camps despite a recent attack by locals. Pontianak is ringed by refugee camps where thousands of Madurese are still sheltering after ethnic tension boiled over into bloodshed in 1999.
