Army releases tonnes of salt into the atmosphere in preventive measure to avoid further flooding in the capital.

    The Indonesian capital is still cleaning up in the aftermath of last week's floods.  

    With more heavy rain expected, the city is going to great lengths to try and stay dry. The army has been deployed, armed with tonnes of salt to hold the rain at bay.
