    Students on a tour of Indonesia's Stock Exchange had a remarkable escape from serious injury when a walkway suddenly collapsed. At least 75 people were taken to hospital in Jakarta, but police say none of the injuries are life-threatening.

    Building managers are being questioned about how the floor caved in.

    Al Jazeera's Step Vaessen reports from Jakarta.
