Hercules Alert

In an email from a reader:

"At 19:55 24 September 2009 Xanana Gusmao, Prime Minister of Timor-Leste, entered the Hotel Timor. Upon entering the lobby he met Rosario "Hercules" Marcal - notorious Jakarta gangland figure. After shaking hands and embracing they sat down for a chat as if among old friends on the sofa next to the restaurant on the western side of the lobby area."
