Palu is a chartered city (kota) on the Indonesian island of Sulawesi, 1650km northeast of Jakarta, at, at the mouth of Palu River. It is the capital of the province of Central Sulawesi of a long, narrow bay. Because of its sheltered position between mountain ridges, the climate is unusually dry. At the 2010 Census Palu had a population of around 336,300, not including those living in neighbouring regencies.AdministrationThe city was divided at 2010 into four districts (kecamatan), tabulated below with their 2010 Census population.HistoryThe town was part of the Dutch Empire until Indonesia won independence in 1945–49. The Dutch controleurs house survives as a testament of that era.CIA air raidsIn April 1958 during the Permesta rebellion in North Sulawesi, the USA supported and supplied the rebels. Pilots from a CIA Taiwan-based front organisation, Civil Air Transport, flying CIA B-26 Invader aircraft, repeatedly bombed and machine-gunned targets in and around Palu; destroying vehicles, buildings, a bridge and a ship.
