Indonesia has recalled its ambassador to Saudi Arabia in response to the execution of an Indonesian maid who was convicted of murdering her Saudi employer.

The maid's beheading has sparked protests in Jakarta and calls for an explanation from Riyadh. 

In the past 20 years, a total of 303 migrant workers from Indonesia have been sentenced to death in Saudi Arabia.

Indonesia has managed to help only 12 of its citizens escape execution.
