Indonesia to work with Australia on people-smuggling


Indonesia and Australia have pledged increased co-operation on people smuggling, following the sinking of two asylum-seeker boats last month.

Speaking after meeting PM Julia Gillard in Darwin, President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono said Indonesia was a victim of people smuggling too.

But he also called for the release of underage Indonesian boat crew currently detained in Australia.
