Several prisoners who were not charged with a crime were being taken to prison camps on Sunday, and dozens more were still being detained on Thursday.
A group of jailed inmates, led by Basman Bako, who has been leading the protest movement that helped bring the violence to the attention of President Joko Widodo, set fire to a police checkpoint and refused to give up.
