Good Bye, Pak Harto!

Second former President of The Republik of Indonesia, Suharto died peacefully today in Jakarta, Indonesia, aged 86 after having been in a critical condition since January 4th. Flags are showing at half-mast today and a seven day mourning period has been declared.
His body will be moved to Java's royal city of Solo tomorrow for the funeral. He will be laid to rest in the Suharto family mausoleum, which is about 21 miles northeast of Solo.
"We, the whole family, thank everyone who has prayed for our father," said Suharto's eldest daughter Siti Hadijanti Rukmana, also known as Tutut, sobbing during a news conference.
