An expatriate living in Indonesia has reportedly had his villa and motorcycle set on fire after he allegedly insulted a group of Muslims.
Stephen Alexander, a German expat who has lived on the island of Lombok for ten years, is said to have interrupted evening prayers by accusing local villagers of vandalising one of the statues in his front garden and verbally attacking the morals of the Muslim witnesses.
A villager named by the Jakarta Globe as Mustan said: "He came carrying the statue head and got angry at Amalsah, the village chief, accusing the villagers of damaging his statues and demanding to know what sort of Muslims we were."
The newspaper reported that the expatriate then fled to a nearby forest and hundreds of residents attacked his villa and set his motorbike alight.
Police arrested the expat and he is now in custody at Senggigi police headquarters.
Another expatriate was involved in a similar incident last week when he allegedly walked into a prayer session at a mosque and unplugged a microphone, possibly assaulting one of the worshippers in the process, the news source reported.
