Top security in Indonesia for Christmas

More than 17,000 police and soldiers have been deployed in the Indonesian capital to guard against a repeat of Christmas Eve attacks seven years ago, when Christian churches in the mainly Muslim nation were bombed.

There had been no intelligence reports of a possible attack by Islamic militants, but police were taking no chances, Jakarta police spokesman Ketut Untung Yoga Ana said on Monday.

"We are anticipating any eventualities, even though there are no indications of an attack," he said.
