Asylum seekers leave Australia ship

Sri Lankan boat people leave ship after promises of resettlement in Australia.

    Sri Lankan asylum seekers have finally left an Australian ship for a detention centre in Indonesia.

    After a month-long standoff, they agreed to leave the ship following Australian promises of quick resettlement to those with genuine refugee claims.

    But as Aela Callan reports from Tanjung Pinang in Indonesia, the crisis is far from over.
