Soldiers on Papua torture trial

Indonesia tries three soldiers over torture, but critics say the proceedings are sham.

In Indonesia, three soldiers are on trial for their alleged involvement in the torture of two Papuan farmers last May.

The case attracted international attention after video footage of the abuse was uploaded on the internet.

However, they are not being charged with torture but with disobeying orders, prompting many to say the trial is a sham.
