Indonesia becomes frontline in World Bank battle against corruption Paul Wolfowitz, a key architect of America's invasion of Iraq and its ambitions to reshape the world, was President George Bush's controversial choice to take the reins of the World Bank last year. Mr Wolfowitz, despised by many for his policies but admired for his intellect, ignored the furore over his appointment, waiting 12 months to make his first major policy pronouncement. Its location, Indonesia, and his warning of rampant corruption undermining global aid and development efforts, was almost as ambitious and controversial as his attempts to re-engineer the Middle East.

The work of the notorious Demolition Man is believed to have been behind four of the worst terrorist attacks in Indonesia -- the Bali bombings of 2002, the JW Marriott Hotel bombing in 2003, the Kuningan bombing in Jakarta in 2004, and last month's bombings in Kuta and Jimbaran.

Long-simmering tensions between indigenous Dayaks and immigrant Madurese suddenly exploded in the town of Sampit, Central Kalimantan, in the middle of February 2001. Within days, isolated killings perpetrated by both sides had developed into a one-sided massacre of Madurese by enraged Dayaks. In the following weeks the killings spread to other areas in the province and by early April almost the entire Madurese population had fled the province. The massacre of about 500 – and possibly many more - Madurese by Dayaks and the flight of virtually the entire Madurese community closely resembled two similar events in the Sambas district in the northern part of West Kalimantan in 1996-7 and in 1999 and highlighted the danger of violence spreading to West and East Kalimantan.
