Banda Aceh is a city in Sumatra, Indonesia. Around 150,000 people there were killed in the Tsunami on 26 December 2004. The long conflict between the Acehnese independence movement (GAM) and the Indonesian army (TNI) has been solved for the time being by the peace agreement on 15 August 2005. The peace process has been smooth since then.
