This Week: Overthrow of Indonesia's Suharto (May 24, 1998)

In an article for the series "This Week in International Broadcasting History," Mike Richman writes about the coverage by veteran VOA correspondent Gary Thomas on the overthrow of Indonesian President Suharto.  Thomas was on the scene for much of the two-year opposition-led revolt that forced Suharto to relinquish power on May 21, 1998.  Thomas witnessed opposition-led riots and people being shot by Indonesian security forces.  In his nearly three decades at VOA, he describes the events that led to Suharto’s downfall stand as his most memorable story.
