Indonesia sex video triggers debate

Sex video allegedly featuring pop stars prompts call for implementation of sharia.

    A scandal allegedly featuring one of Indonesia's most famous pop stars in a sex video with other celebrities has captivated the Indonesian media and public for weeks.

    The scandal has even prompted Bambang Susilo Yudhyono, the Indonesian president, to speak out against "increasingly immoral behaviour".

    And some Muslim groups have taken to the streets in Jakarta asking for Islamic law to be implemented in the country.
