Jakarta returns to normal after violent protests


11-06-2016 10:15 BJT

Authorities in Jakarta have started to clean up an area near the Indonesian Presidential Palace after a massive protest.

This comes after a huge rally by hard-line Muslims against Jakarta's governor, a Christian who they say insulted the Koran.

On Friday night, police used tear gas and water cannons on about 150,000 people who congregated around the presidential palace. Police said one person died and seven were injured.

Indonesian President Joko Widodo was forced to postpone a visit to Australia.
