Islamic sect Ahmadiyah faces ban in Indonesia

In Indonesia, the members of a small religious sect called the Ahmadiyah are finding life increasingly difficult.

Indonesia is a secular country, with freedom of religious expression enshrined in the constitution, but now even the government is debating whether to disband the sect.
