Azahari, hard work and stupidity If there was ever an occasion when the words "terrorism" and "good news" can ever be used in the same sentence, then Wednesday's police raid that led to the death of bombmaker Dr. Azahari was certainly one of them.

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.

An informed electorate could cost Megawati Heavyweight political parties have long held sway in Indonesia, but the emergence of a new breed of voter more likely to listen to the media or even mystics for guidance has robbed them of their former dominance, analysts say.

Within exactly one week of severe clashes, demonstrations and a big number of gruesome casualties, reformasi against Suharto was formally ended.
