More on Indonesia

Indonesia's government appealed for calm on Tuesday and insisted it was able to handle an outbreak of bird flu that has killed four people in the country. 

The call came after three more people with flu-like symptoms were admitted to hospital in the capital late on Monday, hours after the government put the country on high alert.
