AMBON - A minor clash on Saturday failed to prevent Muslims and Christians in the city of Ambon in Maluku province from continuing to mend fences after years of violence. Public activities across the town returned to normal on Sunday, with people from both communities gathering in small groups and talking with each other. The roads leading east out of Ambon via the Galunggung and Batumerah areas, which had been closed due to the violence, were reopened. City minibuses and other vehicles were able to use the roads with no trouble. And Christian motorists were able to pass freely along roads leading west out of the city via the Pohon Mangga and Airsalobar areas.
