    Indonesia has announced that it will ban the group Hizbut Tahrir. It says the organisation's ideology calling for an Islamic state is against the constitution.

    The move comes just a day before the verdict in the blasphemy trial of a Christian governor, known as Ahok. For months, conservative religious groups have protested against him and demanded the Christian governor be put in prison for blasphemy.
