The Red Cross has suspended activities in the Indonesian province of Aceh for a day after a representative of the German Red Cross delegation, Erhard Bauer, was shot and wounded by a pair of gunmen in the outskirts of Banda Aceh on Thursday. Bauer suffered wounds to his abdomen and arm.
While the motive for the attack is unknown Aceh has experienced low-level political violence since 2005 when a thirty year separatist war was officially ended.
Bauer was treated at Public Hospital Dr. Zainoel Abidin (RSUZA) in Banda Aceh before being flown to Singapore for further treatment and convalescence.
