Indonesian military were deployed on the streets of Jakarta as violence continue in the second day of post-election protests.

Military can be seen arriving in a truck at the scene of the riots in Jakarta.

The violent protests broke out earlier this week after it was confirmed that President Joko Widodo won last month’s election.

At least eight people were killed and more than 700 injured in clashes this week, media reported.
