Saving Indonesia's street children

Campaign launched in Jakarta to protect children following a string of murders.



    Indonesian authorities have launched a campaign to protect thousands of children who live on the streets of the capital Jakarta.

    The move follows one man's admission that he raped, murdered and mutilated at least 10 street kids.

    Officials are concerned that many more children may have been his victims.
