Flood death toll rises to 21 in Indonesian capital

The death toll from flash floods and landslides in and around Indonesia’s capital Jakarta reached at least 21 with more heavy rain forecast.The deadliest floods in years displaced more than 30,000 people and caused chaos across parts of the densely populated city with train lines blocked and power outages in some areas. Swathes of Jakarta and nearby towns were inundated after heavy rain fell on December 31 and into the early hours of New Year’s Day. Indonesia’s President Joko Widodo said safety procedures should be prioritised, but called for more coordination between the city administration with the central government.
