JAKARTA: Two Indonesian soldiers were injured Tuesday after a smoke grenade detonated near Jakarta’s national monument, but authorities ruled out an attack, reports AFP.

The blast occurred around 7:00 am local time (1200 GMT) as military and police personnel were taking a morning jog around the leafy grounds in the centre of the capital.

“We’re now investigating why the smoke grenade was there,” Jakarta police chief Gatot Eddy told reporters, adding that the two injured had been rushed to hospital.
