Indonesia would partially block social media to prevent the spread of fake news after violence broke out in Jakarta following the announcement of official election results, Reuters reported today. 

Indonesia’s Chief Security Minister Wiranto said they would limit access to certain features on social media to avoid provocations and the spread of fake news through the community.

Six people were killed in unrest that gripped parts of Jakarta Tuesday night after the election commission confirmed that President Joko Widodo won last month’s election.
