A religious conflict tamed Despite a flurry of warnings about possible violence over the holidays, residents in this capital of Central Sulawesi Province, thought the bomb blast that ripped through a nearby pork-selling market on New Year's Eve was an earthquake. They were convinced, like so many others in the region, that the communal tensions that erupted into deadly clashes between Muslims and Christians five years ago were a thing of the past. Even after finding out it was a bomb, they condemned it as simply the work of a small group of "terrorists."

Tommy to surrender on Monday, lawyer says Defense lawyer of the youngest son of the former president Soeharto, Hutomo "Tommy" Mandala Putra, said that his client would surrender to prosecutors on Monday to begin serving his 18 months jail term. Erman Umar said Tommy did not leave the country and would appear on Monday at the South Jakarta Prosecutors Office. "He (Tommy) is still in Jakarta and he is still free as he has not received copies of the presidential decree on his clemency refusal," he said. The statement came after Tommy was declared a fugitive after a state prosecutor and police waited in vain at his central Jakarta residence for six hours Friday night to arrest him.
