The Olympic torch continues its worldwide tour in the Indonesian capital today. It is the first time the Olympic torch comes to Indonesia, but not many will be able to witness it. The route originally earmarked for the torch to follow has been modified and for security reasons the public will not be allowed to assist the relay according to The Jakarta Post. Security measures have been taken because of the violent clashes between pro-Tibet and pro-China protesters that have taken place since the begining of the tour.
