Tommy Suharto lodges appeal
The youngest son of former President Suharto of Indonesia has gone to court to appeal against a 15-year prison conviction for murder and possession of firearms.

Tommy Suharto was jailed last July for ordering the contract killing of a Supreme Court judge who had earlier sentenced him to jail for corruption.

Mr Suharto appeared in court in the town of Cilacap in Central Java close to the top-security Nusakambangan island prison where he is being held.

His lawyers say they will be presenting new evidence in support of his appeal.
