At least six people died in the Indonesian capital of Jakarta during violent protests by supporters of an unsuccessful presidential candidate Tuesday night. Outside the country’s Elections Commission, protesters burned cars and threw rocks at police officers, who responded with tear gas and water cannons. Jakarta Gov. Anies Baswedan said about 200 people sustained injuries. Authorities have detained at least 20 people since Tuesday.
