El gobierno espera emprender pronto la inmunización a nivel nacional, pero la vacuna de la empresa china requiere la aprobación de los reguladores de seguridad y de un influyente consejo religioso.
President Joko Widodo hopes to begin inoculations soon, but the vaccine from the Chinese company Sinovac still needs approval from safety regulators and an influential council of Muslim clerics.
The government dissolved the Islamic Defenders Front over charges that its members committed terrorism. Its leader is already under arrest.
The authorities said the men, adherents of the Muslim cleric Rizieq Shihab, were shot and killed after they attacked officers in an unmarked car that had been following them.
Rizieq Shihab and his vigilante movement have spent decades calling for harsh Islamic rule. Now he’s back from self-imposed exile and promising a “moral revolution.”
