Bedok reservoir too mainstream. [CNA] Two Singaporean men drown in Indonesia

BINTAN, Indonesia: Two Singaporean men drowned after high waves struck while they were swimming off Indonesia's Sumatra island on Saturday, police said. Three Singaporeans were swimming off Trikora beach in Bintan island when they were dragged out to sea. "One of them managed to swim to shore and sought help from local people," the police chief in Gunung Kijang town, Rahmat Djantan, told AFP. The first body was found in the morning and the second in the late afternoon, he said. The three were followers of the moderate Tabligh movement, whose missionaries travel the globe to preach Islam. Police said they had been on the island, which is near Singapore, for 40 days.
