Animal trafficking in Indonesia

Al Jazeera revisits Jakarta's wildlife markets five years after our initial report to determine if anything has changed.

    Al Jazeera English is marking five years on air this month and looking back at some of the stories we covered on our first day of broadcast.

    One of the first reports was a special look at animal trafficking across Asia. It is a multi-billion dollar global industry, out-weighed only by the illegal weapons and drugs trade.

    So after five years, has anything changed?

    Al Jazeera's Step Vaessen reports from Indonesia's capital, Jakarta.
