Pictures of women in their underwear with their breasts partially exposed do not violate Indonesia's indecency laws, a court in the Muslim nation ruled today.

Playboy Indonesia editor-in-chief Erwin Arnada had faced a maximum punishment of nearly three years in prison, the Associated Press reports. The magazine first hit newsstands a year ago.

"Outside the courthouse, a protest erupted involving about 100 members of the Islamic Defenders' Front, a small group with a history of attacking bars and nightclubs. More than 600 police officers armed with two water cannons stood by in case of violence," the news service reported.
