Six people are dead and more than 200 injured in the wake of the violent riots that have outbroken in Indonesia’s capital of Jakarta.

Indonesia’s election commission announced President Joko Widodo’s second term win around 2:00am Tuesday in an effort to avoid suspected mass rioting, however, protestors still descended across the city, clashing with Widodo supporters and police.

The riots continue to escalate with protestors burning vehicles, throwing rocks at police, and using tear gas, rubber bullets and water cannons.
