Indonesian soldiers wielding sticks dispersed a demonstration by Muslim youths in the central Javan city of Yogyakarta yesterday as tensions between contestants in Indonesia's election continued to rise.

Armed troops charged the protest by about 100 Muslim youths after they took to the streets to express anger against a recent attack on the local offices of the Muslim-oriented United Development Party (PPP).
