Indonesia requests permanent seat on UN Security Council Indonesia pressed its case on Monday to be the voice of "moderate Islam" at the United Nations by calling for a permanent seat on an expanded UN Security Council. With UN Secretary General Kofi Annan seeking proposals to reform the council after the Iraq war left the council divided, Foreign Minister Hassan Wirajuda said his country was well placed to take a council seat. "A developing world striving not only for social and economic progress but also for democratisation must have a voice on the Security Council," he said in a speech to the UN General Assembly.

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.

On a Friday just before noon prayers in the simple wooden mosque, soldiers stormed into this village, herded the people together and, according to two residents, marched them toward a neighboring hamlet, setting fire to houses as they went. After six weeks, the village elder, Bin Ali, 52, and his neighbor, Agus Salim, 35, summoned the courage to return to the ashes of their life's possessions. In the debris of Mr. Bin's home, only a white porcelain serving dish, a present to his wife, survived intact. Next door, Mr. Agus, choking with emotion, fingered the charred wreckage of his motorcycle. It had been his sole means of livelihood. Empty military ration cans were strewn on the red earth, silvery reminders of who had been here last.

It's the road from nowhere, but it's surprisingly busy. Mafalda Florindo and Isabella Antonine walk along it, smiling betel-stained grins as they talk about cloth they had just bought for a good price. A little farther, Alicin Soares, a rice grower, maneuvers his truck along the dusty track. His vehicle is filled with people, some of them smoking, and five jerricans of gasoline. Later Antonio Serrano arrives in a van filled with Coke and Fanta, 50 cases in all, to be sold at a tidy profit of $1 a case. He does the trip every day.
