    The Indonesian government is being sued for not doing enough to tackle air pollution.

    Last year, a study ranked Jakarta the most-polluted city in Southeast Asia.

    The government has undertaken to reduce air pollution, but a group of 31 Indonesians say that it is not enough and is now taking the government to court.

    Al Jazeera's Florence Looi reports from the Indonesian capital.
