JAKARTA: Chinese video app Tik Tok, the most downloaded app globally on Apple Inc's app store in January-March, will set up a team of censors in Indonesia to overturn a ban imposed for "inappropriate content", local media reported on July 5.

The app is popular among young people for its homemade music videos. But access was blocked on July 3 by authorities in Indonesia, home to the world's biggest Muslim population, for featuring content deemed pornographic and blasphemous.
