Indonesia authorities announced that an increased security presence and measures would be implemented in Jakarta on Tuesday, November 5, amid the arrival of Rizieq Shihab, the leader of the Islamic Defenders' Front (FPI). Shihab was previously on a self-imposed exile in Saudi Arabia. Heightened security and measures will be implemented at Soekarno-Hatta International Airport (CGK) amid plans from FPI supporters to greet Shihab on arrival. Additionally, disruptions and more FPI supporters are expected in the Petamburan area, near Shihab's residence.
A heightened security presence and associated disruptions to transportation are likely in the vicinity of the gathering in the near term.
Those in Jakarta are advised to anticipate disruptions, minimize time spent in the vicinity of the gathering, and heed all instructions issued by local authorities.
