Thousands of Indonesian Islamic Defenders Front (FPI) supporters protested in front of the Myanmar Embassy in Jakarta on Wednesday, calling for immediate action to halt the persecution of Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar. The activists set fire to a Myanmar flag, before attempting to tear down a razor wire barricade to reach the embassy, leading to police intervention. Nearly 400 Rohingya Muslims were reportedly killed in mid-August in clashes and military confrontations. It led to around 73,000 Rohingya Muslims fleeing to Bangladesh, the UNHCR reported.
