At least 12 people were injured when part of a mosque's dome collapsed in South Sulawesi, Indonesia.

The mosque, in the district of Ujung Tanah, Makassar, which was built in 1993, was packed last night (Mar 26) when part of the dome fell.

Hundreds of people, including children, had gathered to attend Tarawih prayers to mark the fifth night of the fasting month of Ramadan.

Makassar mayor Danny Pomanto said the injured were taken to a naval hospital, Pattingalloang community health centre and Akademis Jaury Hospital.

He also directed all relevant authorities to provide support for the injured and ordered the temporary closure of the mosque.

An investigation is currently underway with the city's public works department to determine the cause of the collapse, Makassar Port police chief Yudi Frianto was quoted by online media as saying.
