Bali drug trial: Lindsay Sandiford 'should get 15 years'

A British woman on trial for drug trafficking in Indonesia should be imprisoned for 15 years, prosecutors have told a Bali court.

The maximum penalty is death, but prosecutors requested the lesser sentence for Lindsay Sandiford, 56, after taking into account her age and her co-operation during investigations.

Her lawyers have asked for time to respond to the prosecution demand.

A verdict is expected in early January after the next court hearing.

The BBC's Karishma Vaswani was in court.
