Thousands of security forces have been deployed to secure a city on the outskirts of the Indonesian capital where President George W. Bush will meet his counterpart later this month, a police official said Thursday. Bush will hold talks with President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono on Nov. 20, after attending an Asia-Pacific Economic meeting in Vietnam, where he will meet Southeast Asian leaders. Police Lt. Col. Dade Ahmad said police officers, many of them undercover, are already guarding major roads, landmarks and the Presidential Palace in Bogor, around 60 kilometers (40 miles) south of the capital, Jakarta. In Vietnam, Bush will meet separately with Vietnamese President Nguyen Minh Triet and Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung on Nov. 18-19.
