Protests in Indonesia Over Australian Spying Reports - 21 Nov 2013

Images from Indonesia where protesters burned Australian flags over reports Australia's spies tried to tap the phones of President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono and his wife, plunging relations between the neighbors to their lowest point since the late 1990s.

About 200 people marched to the heavily fortified Australian embassy in Jakarta - the scene of a 2004 bombing that killed 10 people - to demand an apology over the alleged spying, which prompted Yudhoyono to downgrade diplomatic relations with Canberra on Wednesday. The reports that sparked the Indonesian outrage quoted documents leaked by former U.S. National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden, suggesting Australia had tried to monitor the phones of top Indonesian officials in 2009.

Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott has not confirmed the spying or apologized, although he has expressed regret for the embarrassment the media reports had caused Yudhoyono and his family.
