JAKARTA (AFP) - A Canadian teacher has been arrested in Indonesia for alleged child sex abuse, police said on Tuesday, in a scandal that has rocked one of the country's most prestigious international schools.

The teacher, an administrator at the Jakarta International School in the capital, could face up to 15 years' jail if found guilty, Jakarta police spokesman Rikwanto said.

"We arrested him Monday night over suspicions of child rape. He allegedly committed the act repeatedly in several locations on the school's premises over a period of six months," he told AFP.

An Indonesian teacher at the school was also arrested on Monday for alleged sexual assault, Rikwanto said.
