JAKARTA, Indonesia — A French man accused of molesting over 300 Indonesian children has died after apparently trying to kill himself in detention, police said Monday.Francois Camille Abello was taken to a hospital after a guard found him lying in his cell with a wire wrapped around his neck, Jakarta police spokesman Yusri Yunus said.
“His condition was stable a day later, but then deteriorated (because ) of brain damage due to lack of oxygen after suicide attempt,” Yunus said.Abello, 65, had been paraded in handcuffs at a news conference on Thursday where police said videos on his computer showed him engaging in illegal sex acts with 305 children aged 10 to 17. Abello remained silent at the news conference.

Abello paid them between $17 and $70 for engaging in sex acts and beat those who refused, Sudjana said.
Police are still investigating whether he has also exploited his victims economically through social media or other internet platforms prior to his death.French embassy officials were not available for comment.AdvertisementAbello was arrested late last month in a hotel room in western Jakarta where he was found with two naked girls after police had received a tip from nearby residents who suspected a foreigner at the hotel was exploiting children.
A conviction under Indonesia’s child protection laws could have carried the death penalty for Abello, Yunus said.NewsletterMust-read stories from the L.A. TimesGet all the day's most vital news with our Today's Headlines newsletter, sent every weekday morning.Read more: Los Angeles Times »

USTR announces duties on $1.3B in French goods in tax disputeThe Trump administration announced a 25 percent tariff on $1.3 billion worth of French handbags, cosmetics and soaps in retaliation for a digital services tax on U.S. internet giants I don’t believe IT tech giants deserve such retaliation from Trump. All of them are Never Trumpers. But who knows: maybe they will appreciate the move and will encourage Americans to vote 🗳 for Trump. Interesting politics. Will see what happens. Tariffs do nothing but raise prices on purchases by American buyers but the Donald knows more than everybody Why does Trump need so many new tariffs? Has he figured out a way to funnel those extra money (paid by U.S. customers)?
