Floods in Indonesia's capital Jakarta have left at least 11 people dead and two missing, with parts of the city submerged for a second day today.
The floods have forced 18,000 people from their homes, with many ferried to temporary shelters on rafts.
"Floods are occurring still and since January 15. Eleven people have died, five from electrocution," said Disaster Agency spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho.
Among the dead were two children aged two and 13.
Mr Nugroho said that, although the waters were receding, 8 per cent of the capital was still inundated and a city-wide state of emergency would apply until January 27.
The floods are the worst to hit the capital since 2007, when about 50 people were killed and more than 300,000 were displaced.
Authorities warned that torrential rains would not subside until the end of the week.
