JAKARTA (Reuters) - Indonesia has asked telecoms providers to shut down some mobile internet services in its holiday island of Bali on Saturday, to respect the predominantly Hindu island's New Year "day of silence".

Most activities on the island, known for its beaches and temples, usually come to a standstill on the day of "Nyepi", including a temporary closure of the international airport.
