Metrotvnews.com, Jakarta: Several Muslim organizations continued their demonstration outside the Myanmar Embassy in the afternoon.

"Aung San Suu Kyi must end violence against Rohingya people," said one protester outside the Myanmar Embassy in Jakarta on Friday (11/25).

Myanmar soldiers razed Rohignya villages in Rakhine province over the last few weeks. Myanmar officials accused Rohingya militans attacked government buildings.

"President Joko Widodo must take strategic measures," said another protester.

The protesters initially planned to observe Friday prayer outside the embassy. However, the police did not allow the action.

The police tightened security around the embassy today. They placed razor wire in front of the embassy. They also prepared anti-riot vehicles.
