Anxious to escape: young Indonesians share lunch as they wait outside Ambon Port for a boat totransport them away from the city, which became a battle zone this week after troops loosed fire on Christians and Moslems locked in violent confrontations on the streets. Thousands of families have already left, many heading for Sulawesi island about 750km to the west. Photograph: SUPRI
