    Demonstrations in Indonesia

    Police arrested more than 100 protesters in the Indonesian capital yesterday during a rally over fuel price rises. According to police protesters threw fuel bombs and burned tyres on the streets. Some 26 protesters, who rallied outside the presidential palace at midnight on Friday, when the price rise came into effect, were also arrested. Hike in fuel price came after the governments decision to cut fuel subsidy by 28.7%, a move that is more likely to have a negative impact on inflation. As a countermeasure, Indonesias government plans to grant an allowance to low-income population, whose total sum mounts up to 1.5 billion euros. Many demonstrations were staged during the week in protest against rises in fuel and food prices while a new demonstration will be held on Saturday.
