Buleleng Village Youths Clash
BULELENG ~ Two villages in Seritrit, Buleleng, were thrown into turmoil by a clash between two groups of youths on Tuesday night, officials said.
According to witnesses, several residents of Gunung Ina and Bukit Sari villages were seen wielding hammers, knives and other weapons made from wood and iron.
