Indonesia's pro-democracy leader refused to be questioned by police about a riot that erupted after security forces raided her party headquarters.

Megawati Sukarnoputri, who says a summons naming her as a witness is not valid, instead sent lawyers to police headquarters, where they talked to investigators. Police said a new summons would be issued. Mrs Megawati, daughter of Indonesia's founding president Sukarno, is fighting official efforts to remove her as chief of the opposition Indonesian Democratic Party. The current President, General Suharto, apparently is afraid that growing support for her, especially among admirers of her late father, could threaten his government. AP - Jakarta
