Indonesia ex-leader Suharto dies
Indonesian ex-leader Suharto, 86, has died after suffering multiple organ failure for the second time this month.
He died at 1310 (0610 GMT) after slipping into a coma, doctors said.
During his 32-years in power, the economy thrived, but thousands were killed in the provinces of Papua and Aceh and in East Timor invaded in 1975.

Suharto ruled Indonesia with an iron fist for three decades

Suharto left office in 1998 amid mass protests over corruption and the human rights abuses, but did not stand trial on health grounds.
No-one has been punished for the killings.
