40,000 gather in Jakarta to protest US Jerusalem decision

At least 40,000 people gathered on Sunday (Dec 17) morning at the National Monument (Monas) to protest against US President Donald Trump's controversial decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, The Straits Times reports.

"Sunday as per 8am local time, the Defend Palestine rally at Monas circle had a crowd of about 40,000 and the people still keep coming," Jakarta police spokesman Colonel Argo Yuwono said in a statement.

Monas is located across the South side of the presidential palace. The US embassy is less than 100m away from the protest site.
