New members of Indonesia’s Parliament take oath amid protests

Protesters set tires on fire and pelted police with stones, petrol bombs and firecrackers near blocked streets. Riot police responded by firing tear gas and water cannons.

Clashes between stone-throwing students and Riot police officers occurred on Monday night as police tried to disperse protesters, ranging from high school to university students who were trying to reach Parliament after calm had largely returned to the country’s capital over the past four days.
