  • Description

    A FIERCE STRUGGLE IS RAGING IN CENTRAL JAVA, WHERE ARMED COMMUNISTS WERE TODAY (SUNDAY) REPORTED TO HAVE TAKEN CONTROL OF INDONESIA'S DJATIMO AND MANISRENGGO REGIONS. THE GENERAL ROUND-UP OF COMMUNISTS IS, MEANWHILE, STILL GOING ON AND TRUCKLOADS OF THEM ARE NOW ARRIVING IN DJAKARTA, THE CAPITAL.

    THE LEADER OF THE ABORTIVE COUP, COLONEL UNTUNG, IS STILL BEING HELD AT THE DJAKARTA ARMY DISTRICT COMMAND BUILDING, WHERE OTHER DETAINEES ARE NOW ARRIVING. ONE GROUP WHO ARRIVED ON THURSDAY HAD BEEN BROUGHT TO THE CAPITAL BY TROOPS OF THE GARRISON AT BOGOR, ABOUT 40 MILES (ABOUT 65 KILOMETRES) AWAY.

    IN THE TRUCKS WERE MEMBERS OF SOBSI, THE COMMUNIST UNION MOVEMENT, AND GERWANI, THE WOMEN'S WING. HOWEVER, MANY OF THOSE ARRESTED OVER THE PAST MONTH HAVE NOW BEEN RELEASED. PARENTS ARE SEARCHING FOR SONS AND DAUGHTERS ARRESTED BY THE ARMY OR ATTEMPTING TO PROVE THEY PLAYED NO PART IN THE UPRISING.

    (IN DJATIMO AND MANISRENGGO REGIONS, THE SITUATION IS REPORTED TO BE VERY SERIOUS AND THE THIRD DEPUTY PREMIER, DR. CHAERUL SAHEH, HAS DESCRIBED THE FIGHTING AS "CIVIL WAR". AMONG THE LEADING GOVERNMENT MINISTERS COMING UNDER INCREASING CRITICISM IN INDONESIA IS DR. SUBANDRIO, THE FOREIGN MINISTER, WHO IS NOW OPPOSED BY THE INDONESIAN WORKERS' ASSOCIATION AS WELL AS THE INFLUENTIAL ISLAMIC PARTY, P.S.I.I.)
