About 600 people in Indonesia’s Aceh Province, which was devastated by a massive earthquake and tsunami in 2004, participated in a ceremony Monday to commemorate the second anniversary of a similar catastrophe that ravaged the Tohoku region in 2011.

Schoolchildren, representatives of society and nongovernmental organizations, government officials and others participated in the “Solidarity for Japan” ceremony, which was organized by the Indonesia-Japan Friendship Forum at a schoolhouse in Peukan Bada, a village near the provincial capital, Banda Aceh.
