What would you say, men, the the killer of their mother? And you could forgive them? These were the questions which the 17-year-old Sarah Salsabila on an Indonesian prison island in One Day last October.
Iwan Setiawan was on His motorcycle, speeding past the Australian Embassy in Jakarta. His mind was on His wife, whose arms were around His chest and a pregnant woman, whose belly he could feel pressing against His back. Her Second Child was within weeks, and they were on the way to the hospital for a check-up.
"was there Suddenly this incredibly loud noise and we were thrown in the air," he recalls.
Ivan didn't know until much later That it was a suicide bomb, the local work of militant Islamist group Jemaah Islamiyah , a militant group with links to al-Qaeda, responsible for a series of attacks in Indonesia, including the bombing on Bali in 2002, 202 people were killed from all over The World .

"My mother was so incredibly strong," says Ivan, and Halila, The First child of Sarah with Tears in Her Eyes . "Though their bones were broken, she was to give birth to be able to, of course, To My brother. She was so incredibly strong, my mum. "
But Halila never recovered from their injuries and two years later, on Sarah's fifth birthday, she died.
At first, he was filled with a desire For Revenge .
"I wanted to die, the surviving Bomber, But I didn't want you to die quickly", he says.
"I wanted you to be tortured first. I wanted to cut your skin and the salt in The Wounds , so That they had caused a certain notion of The Pain of their bombing, both physically and mentally. My children and I have fought so incredibly hard to just live on. "
It's October 2019, 15 years since the 2004 Australian Embassy bombing and 13 since Halila death. Rizqy is now on the junior High School , while Sarah's school are passing days almost. Together with Ivan, we are on a boat a narrow road in the jungle cross-covered island of Nusakambangan, off the coast of Java, The Site of Indonesia's highest security prison.Sarah wants to know why The Men 's wing did it
"I only hope That this journey will open the hearts of the bombers. "
Ivan has met one of The Men , thanks to Indonesia's unique deradicalisation program, arranged a meeting between militants and their victims. But for His children, it is the First Time . I ask Ivan, for what feels like the 100th time, if he really wants to do this.crossing divides
to bring A season of stories about the people together in a fragmented world.
"Yes, it is very important for my children to have the opportunity," said he.
It is clear That you are a very close family.
Sarah, 17, is stylishly dressed in a black head-cloth, striped T-shirt and long pants. She takes selfies during our trip, and like many young people, glued to your cell phone.
"I hope this meeting The Terrorists to make people think, and That you beg for Forgiveness from Allah. If you really regret what you have done, then there may be other influences, and it will happen, hopefully, never again. "
Sarah is a burning question she has been waiting to ask for years.
"Why did you do it? This is what I want to know. "
Dressed in an orange jumpsuit, Iwan Darmawan with Her, alias Rois, is sitting waiting in a small conference room. He looks frail and in a wheelchair - he had tied up a recent stroke, But His legs and hands are still.Iwan Darmawan with Her, alias Rois, kept in the seclusion of the Batu prison
At His trial, Rois stood up and waved His fist after the verdict was announced, chanting, "I Am thankful for being sentenced to death... because I'll die a Martyr!" It is assumed That the Australian Embassy was targeted because of its Alliance with the United States in The War in Iraq.
Two armed prison guards in balaclavas stand either of him. The air is very tense. They tell us That , if Rois tried everything, we need to move quickly to the walls.
Ivan, Sarah, and Rizqy Greet him and sit on plastic chairs. It is Ivan who breaks The Silence .
Rois asks casually, where Ivan was happened in the bombing.Sarah and Rizqy meetings explained Rois
ROI said, "I have a child. I have not seen my wife or my children for years. I really miss you. I'm worse off than you. You're still with your children. My child does not even know me. "
Rois looks at Sarah and Rizqy, both are now staring anxiously at her hands, avoiding Eye Contact .
looking Suddenly everyone at Sarah. We know That you like to ask something.
It is too much for you, and it breaks. Ivan rushes to her and holds her head in His hands, hugging it protectively. They then managed to ask, Rois quietly, why he did it.At His trial, Rois said he was Looking Forward to a Martyr-death
"Maybe when you're older, you understand," he goes on. "I do not agree with the attacks in which The Victims are Muslims. This is not right. You can not not hurt to kill Muslims - just to a Muslim, is it right. "
I'm going in, "What if the victim is not a Muslim?"
"not with I agree That , either," he says quickly.
He shared a cell with the radical preacher Aman Abdurrahman , who pledged allegiance to the so-called Islamic state from behind bars. Both are suspected, planned for 2016 bombing in Jakarta from the inner prison.
But outside, Ivan seems to be deeply shaken.
There are two prisons on The Island and we are from a, Batu, to meet The Other , Permisan, to, Ahmad Hassan , the second man on death row for His role in The Attack That killed Sarah and Rizqy mother.Hassan On Trial
In the shots, seen during His trial, Hassan , raised His fist in defiance, and stared angrily into the camera as he leaves the court, surrounded by security guards and hordes of journalists, But it is a very different man, whom we encounter today.
Dressed in a long Islamic robe with a prayer to the hat, he looks nervous and speaks softly.
Ivan was to The Prison to meet him once.
