    Background: SCORED OF STEEL HELMETED RIOT POLICE ARMED WITH SHIELDS, RIFLES AND TEAR GAS WERE RUSHED TO THE INDONESIAN EMBASSY IN KUALA LUMPUR ON TUESDAY WHEN ABOUT 1,000 PRO-MALAYSIAN DEMONSTRATORS BESIEGED IT.

    SOME OF THE RIOTERS GOT INTO THE BACK YARD OF THE EMBASSY AND SMASHED DOWN A GATE, DAMAGED A HOUSE AND SET FIRE TO SOME FURNITURE.

    (THE FOLLOWING DAY (WEDNESDAY) A SCREAMING MOB IN DJAKARTA BURNED THE BRITISH EMBASSY. AN INDONESIAN GOVERNMENT STATEMENT OF APOLOGY OVER THE INCIDENT SAID THE GOVERNMENT "DEPLORED THE UNJUSTIFIED HAPPENINGS." HOWEVER, THE STATEMENT SAID, THE RIOT WAS A REPLY TO THE ATTACK ON THE INDONESIAN EMBASSY IN KUALA LUMPUR.)
    THE STATEMENT ADDED THAT IT (THE GOVERNMENT) "FULLY UNDERSTOOD THE FLAMING ANGER OF THE PEOPLE TOWARDS THE ACTION CARRIED OUT BY BRITAIN, WHICH BECAME THE "MASTERMIND" OF MALAYSIA".
