Playboy's offices in attacked by FPI-members JAKARTA - Hundreds of Muslim protesters have attacked the offices of the newly-published Indonesian edition of Playboy magazine. On Wednesday, about 300 activists from the Islamic Defenders' Front (FPI) rallied outside the building to demand that the local version of the magazine, which carries no nude photos, cease publication. They tore up copies of the magazine and threw stones at the building, shattering windows.

One of some 90 policemen guarding the building was injured but most of the magazine's employees had left the offices before the attack happened. There were no immediate reports of arrests but witnesses said some police chased stone-throwers. Salim Ali Hamid, one of the leaders of the group, told a local radio: "We will carry out more attacks if Playboy refuses to stop publishing."

Sold out

Playboy's Indonesian edition hit the newsstands last Friday for the first time and was quickly sold out. Copies later changed hands at more than three times the cover price of 39,000 rupiah (4.33 dollars). The magazine featured pictures of underwear-clad women, but also carried an interview with Pramoedya Ananta Toer, Indonesia's most famous author.

FPI activists, notorious for attacking Jakarta nightspots during anti-vice raids, have said that Playboy is synonymous with pornography and is not fit for publication in the world's most populous Muslim country.

Corrupting culture

Earlier this year when plans for Playboy's debut were announced Islamic leaders had expressed worries that the magazine would corrupt a culture already inundated by Western influences. Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, the Indonesian president weighed into the debate in February to question the magazine's benefit to the country.

Most of Indonesia's Muslims, who make up around 85% of the population of 220 million, practise a moderate form of the religion.

Typically a small group of people manage to make themselves headline news over and over again. The first edition was sold out and is now sold for more than three times the official price, that says enough I think Emoticon: I love it
