Indonesia election decision: 'Tense standoff' outside court

After a month of going through the evidence, Indonesia's constitutional court have been deliberating over whether the presidential election results are invalid.

On 22 July Joko Widodo was announced as the winner, but his rival Prabowo Subianto has alleged that the only reason he won is because of fraud.

Earlier on Thursday, scuffles broke out between police and protesters and tear gas and water cannon were used to disperse the demonstrators.

The BBC's Indonesia editor Karishma Vaswani reports from outside the court.
