JAKARTA, June 7
JAKARTA, June 7 (Reuters) - Indonesia's foreign exchange reserves fell to $105.2 billion at the end of May from $107.27 billion the previous month, in line with Bank Indonesia's efforts to support the rupiah in recent weeks, Governor Agus Martowardojo said on Friday.
The reserves climbed in April, helped by the country's $3 billion global bond issuance.
