Muslim activists demanding that Playboy stop publishing an Indonesian edition of the magazine stoned the company's editorial offices on Wednesday and clashed with police officers guarding the building, witnesses said. No one was injured in the melee involving around 150 members of the Islamic Defenders Front, a small hardline group known for vandalizing bars and nightclubs, as well as Western embassies. The protesters smashed several windows and the door and gate at the magazine's officers in south Jakarta, witnesses said.
