in Latest/Slider

JAKARTA: A haze has descended on this Indonesian capital city, reducing visibility to between five and 10 kilometres and making several skyscrapers “disappear” from view.

This Bernama correspondent snapped some photographs which had several tall buildings, such as the 132-metre high National Monument, “missing”.

The air pollutant index table on the website of the Agency for Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics did not indicate air quality of an unhealthy level.

The agency said, however, that Jakarta and nearby areas such as Bogor, Depok, Tengarang and Bekasi will experience thunderstorms today.

Indonesia is currently experiencing the rainy season, and several areas in Jakarta were flooded recently.
