At least four people have been killed by heavy flooding in the Indonesian capital, Jakarta, according to local officials.

The flooding, caused by days of heavy rain, has blocked roads and forced businesses in the capital to close.

Areas including the central business district (CBD) were inundated and traffic was grid-locked as residents struggled to move around the city.
