The condemned men - Imam Samurda and brothers Amrozi Nurhasyim and Ali Gufron - were among more than 30 people convicted in the bombings, many of whom were believed to be members of Jemaah Islamiyah, a South-East Asian offshoot of al-Qaeda.

Presidential transition on halt until Megawati concedes defeat Indonesia has announced the winner of last month's presidential elections, and advisors to President Megawati Sukarnoputri, who lost by a large margin, have said they do not plan to challenge the result. But the transition process has ground to a halt, at least - or so it appears - for another day. It may be a question of Asian reticence, or it may be Indonesia's inexperience with direct presidential elections. Whatever the reason, the presidential transition in the world's largest Muslim nation has come to a stop while each side waits for the other to speak.

Australians rate Indonesia as their greatest military threat The Australian public ranks Indonesia as the country’s greatest military threat, a study by a defence think-tank said on Wednesday. The Australian Strategic Policy Institute surveyed opinion polls on defence issues dating back to the 1960s and found Australians now saw less chance of an foreign security threat than at any time in the past 30 years. “However, to the extent that the public identifies a security threat to Australia, there is a greater consensus than ever before that the threat comes from one country: Indonesia,” it said.
