In Indonesia, supporters of an unsuccessful presidential candidate clashed with security forces and set fire to a police dormitory and vehicles in the capital, Jakarta.

National Police spokesman Dedi Prasetyo said protests turned violent last evening and continued through the night after the release of official election results yesterday. He said today dozens of people were detained.

President Joko Widodo won a second term with 55.5 per cent of the vote in the 17th April election. However, his opponent, former general Prabowo Subianto, has refused to accept the results and declared himself the winner.


His campaign plans to challenge the election in the Constitutional Court. They allege massive fraud but have provided no credible evidence.
