STORYLINE:

Indonesian police fired tear gas Wednesday to disperse protesters trying to get close to a court hearing challenging the legality of last month's elections.

The protesters were supporters of Prabowo Subianto, who lost the polls.

Subianto has alleged massive fraud and filed a complaint at the Constitutional Court, which is due to rule on it later Wednesday.

Witnesses say police fired the tear gas when protesters tried to get past barbed wire blocking a road leading to the court.
