Rohingya refugees in Indonesia: Locals protest against Rohingya arrivals

Tensions are rising in Indonesia’s northern Aceh province – as more than 1,000 Rohingya refugees have reached its shores in recent weeks.
More than a million of them have fled persecution in Myanmar in recent years – most seek refuge in neighbouring Bangladesh.
But overcrowded shelters there have forced many Rohingya to risk another journey – to Indonesia.
And that’s prompting anger from some locals.

Al Jazeera’s Jessica Washington reports from Jakarta, Indonesia.
