EPISODE DESCRIPTION

An elite Indonesian counter-terrorism unit trained and supplied by Australia is being accused of acting as a "death squad" in Indonesia's troubled West Papua province.

The group, known as Detachment 88, receives training, supplies and extensive operational support from the Australian Federal Police.

However, today there is growing evidence that the squad is involved in torture and killings as parts of efforts by the Indonesian authorities to crush the separatist movement in West Papua.

2ser’s Rory O’Gorman spoke with Peter King from the West Papua project at Sydney University.
