Indonesia church plan opposed

Muslims say construction of church in Jakarta suburb violates local regulations.

Thousands of people in Indonesia have been protesting against the construction of a church just outside Jakarta, the capital city.

Muslims say the plan does not comply with the Indonesian law, which requires the support of the local community before building a house of worship.

Christians, however, say that they have already attained the backing of the local government.
