This photo taken on December 4, 2009 shows three Acehnese youths (L) being arrested by a team of Sharia police in Banda Aceh after they were caught gambling over dominoes at a cafe across from a mosque. Most Muslims in the country of 234 million people are modern and moderate, and Indonesia's constitution recognises five official religions including Buddhism and Christianity. But Aceh has special autonomy, and one of the ways it has defined itself as different from the rest of the country is through the implementation of sharia law and the advent of the religious police.
