Asylees' perilous trek to Australia

Al Jazeera reports on the risks asylum seekers in Indonesia take to reach Australia.



    Asylum seekers are willing to take huge risks and put their lives in the hands of the smugglers they hope will deliver them to a better life.

    Some of these people have been stranded in Indonesia for years, with little hope of reaching their dream of a better life.

    For many, crossing the ocean is a risk they're prepared to take. Even if it is the last thing they do.
