Asylum seekers left high and dry in Indonesia
9 April 2014 (IRIN ), Australia’s military-led operation to prevent boats carrying asylum seekers from reaching its shores has been hailed by Prime Minister Tony Abbott as a success, with over 100 days elapsing since the last boat reached its target.

Bearing neither uniform nor insignia, they are indistinguishable from the civilian population.
