Indonesian workers want protection

Al Jazeera visits police hospital in Jakarta where abused maids are taken to recover.

    Indonesia is planning to tighten regulations regarding its nationals working abroad.

    The move comes after an upsurge in the number of people reporting abuse at the hands of their foreign employers.

    Many of these are Indonesian maids working in the Gulf countries.
