Indonesia arrests five policemen over 'torture' video
JAKARTA (AFP) - Indonesian police arrested five policemen on Thursday over the alleged torture of militants after a video posted on YouTube showed a suspect being shot and others abused.
The blurry 14-minute video posted by several Islamic groups on their websites and YouTube depicts officers forcing a man to strip to his underwear before they shoot him, apparently in the chest.
"We arrested five policemen today and others are still being questioned," national police detective chief Sutarman said in a text message, without giving further details.
He said earlier that the video was a compilation of two separate incidents, one from 2007 and another from 2012, and that a total of 16 officers were under an ongoing investigation.
