Part of the ceiling in the atrium of the stock exchange building in Indonesia's capital of Jakarta collapsed at around 12 p.m. An employee at the World Bank, which has an office in the same building, told the BBC a mezzanine level had come down.
The injured, many of them students visiting the building at lunchtime, were taken to four hospitals here, Jakarta police said in a statement, reported Efe news agency.
A structure inside the Jakarta Stock Exchange tower collapsed Monday, injuring at least several people and forcing a chaotic evacuation.
This photo received from Amailia Putri Hasniawati via WhatsApp shows people looking for victims after an internal balcony collapsed at Indonesia's stock exchange in Jakarta on January 15, 2018. Markets are now in midday break and are scheduled to reopen at 1.30pm local time.
The cause was under investigation. "Bourse system is not affected", said exchange chief Tito Sulistio, as cited by Reuters.
The Indonesia Stock Exchange building is now being evacuated.
Jakarta police spokesman Argo Yuwono said those hurt mostly sustained injuries to their legs and arms.
The complex, which also houses the local office of the World Bank, was targeted by Islamist militants in a vehicle bomb attack in 2000.
