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.

What Indonesia can learn from Thai military coup Politics in new democracies like Thailand has always sprung surprises. While Prime Minister Thaksin Sinawatra visited New York for the United Nations General Assembly, Thai army chief Gen. Sonthi Boonyaratglin led a bloodless coup and declared himself the temporary prime minister. It is interesting to observe that the coup did not spark social unrest, as if it were business as usual. On top of that, the tacit endorsement of revered King Bhumibol Adulyadej was a crucial factor behind the smooth process of the coup.

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.

Cabinet room deserted for campaign season Since the start of the 22-day election campaign on March 11, the Cabinet has gone into virtual hibernation, with President Megawati Soekarnoputri, Vice President Hamzah Haz and a number of senior ministers devoting most of their energies to pressing the flesh. Both the presidential and vice presidential offices are now rarely visited by their occupants, even when they are actually in the capital. Apparently, campaigning takes precedence over the affairs of state.

General runs for President in Indonesia As he flew over the coal mines and shrimp farms that dot Indonesia's part of Borneo island, a smiling Gen. Wiranto couldn't contain himself. ``Did you see how they touched me?'' he said. ``It was as if I was Michael Jackson and they were my fans.'' Wiranto had come from a campaign rally in this gritty industrial town 750 miles northeast of Jakarta, where supporters jostled to touch him and chanted ``Long live Wiranto.''

Before he slipped into unconsciousness, six-year-old Kaptan Boonmanuj told his mother, "Mum, my chest feels like it's going to explode." On Jan. 26, after two weeks in a coma, Kaptan died in Bangkok's Siriraj Hospital, becoming Thailand's first victim of avian flu. His parents returned home to the hamlet of Ben Ya Pad, deep in the country's rural western province of Kanchanaburi. Two days had passed since their son's death, and rice farmer Chamnan Boonmanuj and his wife Chongrak sat receiving friends and relatives, the smell of burning incense heavy in the front room of their concrete house. Behind them, Kaptan's body lay in a white coffin. Propped against it was his bicycle, along with a picture of Kaptan wearing his school uniform. Outside, a row of ornate wreaths was placed beside the wall of the house. One was from the Ministry of Public Health.
