Thousands of Indonesian taxi drivers have brought parts of the capital, Jakarta, to a standstill in a protest against transport apps.

The drivers say ride-hailing apps, such as Uber and Grab, have severely reduced their salaries.

Footage from Jakarta showed some protesters attacking vehicles and apparently threatening taxi drivers not taking part in the strike.

The drivers have been joined by bus and "bajaj" motorbike drivers.

Mobile apps like Grab and Uber have disrupted the transportation industry across Asia, and other parts of the world.

Taxi drivers say they been disadvantaged because the apps do not face the same costs and regulations as they do, foreign media reports.
