Indonesians sue government for air pollution

Jakarta was ranked the most-polluted city in Southeast Asia last year.

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.
