AP reported last month that “the unrest seemed to be a reaction to the June 3 lynching of 10 Muslims by a crowd of 300 Buddhists.

“Indonesian Islamic hardliners vow jihad for Rohingyas,” from AFP, July 13:
Hundreds of Islamic hardliners protested outside the Myanmar embassy in the Indonesian capital Jakarta on Friday to “stop the genocide” of Rohingya Muslims in the wake of deadly communal unrest.
Around 300 hardliners from organisations, including the Islamic Defenders Front (FPI) and Jemaah Anshorut Tauhid (JAT), threatened to storm the Myanmar embassy in Jakarta as some 50 police officers guarded the building.
“If embassy officials refuse to talk with us, I demand all of you break into the building and turn it upside down,” a leader on a loudspeaker told protesters, who shouted “Allahu Akbar” (God is Greatest).
“Every drop of blood that is shed from a Muslim must be paid back. Nothing is free in this world,” the man shouted, as protesters carried banners that read “FPI is ready to wage jihad”.
“Go to Myanmar and carry out jihad for your Muslim brothers,” the man said.
The hardliners left without entering the embassy and proceeded to a UN building to protest.
Communal violence between ethnic Buddhist Rakhine and local Muslims, including the Rohingya, swept Myanmar’s Rakhine state in June, leaving dozens dead and tens of thousands homeless.
