Pictures from a protest: caught in the middle

"But when I realised that members of Jamaah Anshorut Tauhid (JAT) – classified as a “terrorist” organization by the US – were among the protesters, I feared something bad could happen. I was right."

"How do you feel about traveling in a (small) boat with a (half-ton) crocodile?", AFP's Jakarta bureau chief Loic Vennin and video journalist Anne-Fleur Delaistre were asked before they joined a mission to save a toothless croc -- baptized ‘Hollande’ in honor of France’s newly-elected President – from an abandoned Indonesian zoo.
