Jakarta, CNN Indonesia - Police again arrested a young man suspected of being part of a mass involved in Jalan Brigjen Katamso, Slipi, West Jakarta. The man became the officers' months when he was escorted to a safer place. The man was arrested after members of the police pushed forward towards a period that had been throwing stones at them and shooting at officers using firecrackers. Now officers at Jalan Brig. Gen. Katamso appear to be loosening their guard by allowing the masses to advance toward the police barricade.
Clashes at Katamso have occurred since the afternoon. Police who fired tear gas were returned by the masses with stones and firecrackers. Riots also occurred in front of the Bawaslu office, but the riots there did not last long. Some of the masses who marched in front of the Bawaslu began to disperse. Others still survive. Later the situation in Bawaslu was back in chaos. Officers throw tear gas at the crowd to disperse.
