Playboy provokes anger in Indonesia


Hardline Indonesian Muslims have been their venting anger against the launch in their country of Playboy magazine. About 300 protesters attacked the building where the magazine is based in the south of Jakarta. Dozens of police were on hand when the militants carried out the attacks, but no one appears to have been arrested.

Indonesian Playboy, which unlike the original US version of the magazine does not show any female nudity, hit the news-stands for the first time this week.
