Police in the conservative province of Aceh have arrested two university students accused of same-sex relations after a raid, LGBT activists confirmed on Friday. Local residents in Banda Aceh, the capital of Aceh, the only province in Indonesia that adheres to the strict code of Islamic Sharia law, broke into the student accommodation on Thursday, confiscated condoms and telephones, and handed them over to the authorities, an activist, who requested anonymity, told EFE. The arrested students are 21 and 24 years old; one is of Christian Batak ethnicity, while the other is Muslim.
