Hong Kong murders: Rurik Jutting fit to stand trial

A judge has ruled that a British banker charged with the murder of two Indonesian women in Hong Kong is fit to stand trial.

Rurik Jutting is accused of killing Sumarti Ningsih and Seneng Mujiasi who were thought to be working illegally in Hong Kong as sex workers.

There are several hundred thousand Indonesian workers in Hong Kong, most of them are there legally, working as domestic helpers.
