Nomadic 'Jungle people' become Muslim so they can "be recognized" and receive government financial support
Hundreds of members of a nomadic Indonesian tribe have converted to Islam as their rainforest hunting grounds are devastated by palm oil plantations and coal mines.

The new Muslims changed their religion to capture the attention of the government, which they say ignores their needs.

The Orang Rimba - 'jungle people - are also hoping to be handed ID cards by officials, which will then entitle them to benefits such as healthcare and education.

'Thank God, the government now pays attention to us; before our conversion they didn't care,' says Yusuf Muhammad, a convert.
