Indonesian ex-dictator Suharto

Indonesia's former dictator Suharto was responding well to dialysis treatment Sunday but remains in critical condition, his doctor said.

Suharto, 86, was admitted Friday to Pertamina Hospital in Jakarta with swollen intestines, a dangerously low heart rate and anemia.

Suharto had stable blood pressure and swelling of his lungs and intestines had been reduced by a blood transfusion and ongoing dialysis, said Dr. Joko Raharjo, one of dozens of physicians treating the former strongman.

"He has stabilized," Raharjo said. "He is still in critical condition because he is now supported by medicines and equipment."
