INDONESIAN STREETCHILDREN RECITE THE MOSLEM HOLY KORAN IN JAKARTA.
Indonesian streetchildren recite the Moslem holy Koran in Jakarta's main Istiqlal mosque December 21. The children are taking part in a special programme organised by a private foundation to teach them Islamic teachings during the Ramadan fasting month. Indonesia is the world's most populous Moslem country. During the fasting month, which will end with the Eid al-Fitr celebrations in January, Moslems avoid food and drink from sunrise to sunset.
