    Asylum seekers from Afghanistan are being forced to live on the streets of the Indonesian capital, because of a lack of humanitarian aid.

    International organisations including the United Nations’ refugee agency have run out of money to help them.

    Some are waiting up to five years for their cases to be heard.

    Al Jazeera's Step Vaessen reports from Jakarta.
