youngsters were apparently found drunk.

The incident occurred when the group were traveling en route to attend an event at the National Monument in Central Jakarta.

“When they [the FPI members] passed a gas station, they spotted the youngsters who were hanging out. They approached them because they assumed the youths were drunk,” Cempaka Putih crime unit detective head, Adj. Comr. Gonjali Ruhulima, said Sunday as quoted by tribunnews.com.

The teenagers fought back against the group. They suffered injuries as they were outnumbered by their attackers. The youngsters were later taken to a hospital for treatment.
