Indonesia: May 29, 2001


Prosecutors have dropped corruption charges against president Wahid. But the parliament still wants him out of office. The chief grievance is misrule. The president has not done anything to stop the separatist movements in the nation. In West Timor, violence in refugee camps on the East Timor border left three dead.
