The National Police's Mobile Brigade (Brimob) headquarters in Depok, West Java is under lockdown following a riot reportedly involving terrorist prisoners on Tuesday evening.
Antara news agency reported police personnel had installed barb wire at 1 a.m. on Wednesday and had ordered civilians to stay away from the location.
National Police spokesman Brig. Gen. M. Iqbal confirmed earlier that a riot had occurred in the Brimob headquarters.
"The incident is being handled by Brimob and local police personnel," Iqbal said as quoted by Antara.
As of Wednesday morning, the National Police and Brimob have yet to give further details on the incident.
A number of high-profile detainees are held in the headquarters' detention center, including former Jakarta governor Basuki "Ahok" Tjahaja Purnama who is currently serving his sentence for blasphemy. (kuk/ahw)
