Indonesian Playboy advertisers decide to cover up

JAKARTA - The second edition of Playboy magazine's Indonesian edition hit the stands yesterday despite protests from Islamic groups and attacks on the publisher's office in Jakarta after its launch in April.

The June edition had no ads and its first two pages contained only the Playboy logo and a publisher's note. "These empty pages are dedicated for our loyal clients that have been threatened because they had run advertisements on this magazine ... This page is owned by a cigarette product."

Although copies are still printed in Jakarta, Playboy Indonesia is now being run from Bali, a Hindu enclave.
