Aceh is known as the most Islamist part of Indonesia.
Indonesian security forces have retaken control of a prison in the country’s west following a riot on Thursday, an official said.
The riot began when three inmates refused to be transferred to another prison, said Edy Hardoyo, the head of Aceh province correctional office. Other inmates joined in the protest before it turned violent.
He said the three inmates who started the riot were angry that they will be transferred to a prison in neighboring province of North Sumatra, far from their families.
