Kalimantan's agony: The failure of Transmigrasi

The island of Borneo has been the scene of horrifying bloodshed and violence. CNN takes a closer look at some of the worst ethnic tension in Indonesia's restive province.
Fleeing Madurese refugees
Madurese refugees fight to get on an overcrowded truck evacuating them from violence-wracked Sampit, Central Kalimantan. Indonesian security forces are clamping down on rampaging indigenous Dayaks and have brought out additional refugees taking shelter in the forest for evacuation.
A policeman underfire
A police officer takes cover during a shootout whilst accompanying Indonesian soldiers at the port where refugees were being evacuated. The reason for this shootout is not yet known.
The casualties of ethnic violence
A police officer is wheeled into the hospital with gunshot wounds after a shootout with Indonesian soldiers. Sampit has been a bed of ethnic unrest between Madurese and indigenous Dayaks.
Madurese arrive from the countryside
Madurese refugees, using branches to shelter themselves, arrive from the countryside. The Madurese compete with the Dayaks for space in the lowest echelons of Borneo's economy.
Refugees full of fear
A police officer pulls off Madurese refugees as they fight to get on an overcrowded truck as it evacuates from Sampit. Dayak-Maduerese unrest has resulted in some of the worst ethnic bloodshed in the archipelago.
