Thousands of Muslims in Asia protest against Trump's Jerusalem plan

JAKARTA/KUALA LUMPUR – Thousands of protesters in Muslim-majority Indonesia and Malaysia joined rallies on Friday to condemn Washington’s decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, as authorities tightened security outside US embassies.

Leaders in both Asian countries have joined a global chorus of voices condemning US President Donald Trump’s move.

Several thousand protesters, some shouting anti-US slogans and burning an effigy of Trump, gathered in front of the American embassy in the Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur.

In Indonesia, hundreds of protesters mostly clad in white were arriving outside the US embassy in Jakarta, capital of the world’s biggest Muslim-majority country.

Some wore checkered scarves and waved Palestinian flags, while others shouted”Allahu Akbar” (God is greatest).
