Indonesian police clash with students during a protest against the government's plan to raise prices of fuel, near the Indonesian presidential palace in Jakarta on March 27, 2012. Thousands rallied across the country to reject the government’s proposal to increase fuel prices by 30 percent as parliament prepares to vote on a divisive subsidy that cost Southeast Asia’s largest economy some $18 billion last year.
