In a landmark human rights trial, 13 soldiers admitted Tuesday that they dragged 26 injured student activists into a field and shot them to death in Aceh province, but they also argued that they should not be punished because they were following orders. One defendant, Lt. Trijoko Adiwiyono, said that when he questioned the order to shoot the students in the field, he was slapped by his commander, Lt. Col. Sudjono. "He might have shot me if I had rejected his order," Adiwiyono testified.
