gain of 1.2 percent, trimming its year-to-date loss to 4.7
percent, still the worst performer in Asia.
    Foreign investors were net buyers of index heavyweights such
as Indofood Sukses Makmur, which jumped 3.5 percent
and Bank Mandiri, which rose 1 percent.

Greece's Sunday referendum which may prompt its exit from the

 posted a weekly gain of 6 percent, the best performer,
ahead of Malaysia's 1.4 percent and Singapore's 0.7 percent
