The former editor-in-chief of the Indonesian edition of Playboy magazine has been arrested on Bali. Erwin Arnada was sentenced to two years in jail for "obscenity" in August but refused to go to jail.

The Indonesian edition of Playboy, the erotic magazine, was forced to close in 2006 after pressure from fundamentalist Muslims. Only a few numbers appeared. The Islamic Defenders Front accused Mr Arnada of being a "moral terrorist".
