On a Friday just before noon prayers in the simple wooden mosque, soldiers stormed into this village, herded the people together and, according to two residents, marched them toward a neighboring hamlet, setting fire to houses as they went. After six weeks, the village elder, Bin Ali, 52, and his neighbor, Agus Salim, 35, summoned the courage to return to the ashes of their life's possessions. In the debris of Mr. Bin's home, only a white porcelain serving dish, a present to his wife, survived intact. Next door, Mr. Agus, choking with emotion, fingered the charred wreckage of his motorcycle. It had been his sole means of livelihood. Empty military ration cans were strewn on the red earth, silvery reminders of who had been here last.
