Image of Asia: Home burials for women slain in HK

In this photo by Tatan Syuflana, workers carry a coffin containing the body of Sumarti Ningsih, one of two Indonesian women who were stabbed to death in Hong Kong, upon its arrival at an airport in Jakarta. The bodies of Ningsih and Seneng Mujiasih were repatriated from Hong Kong on Tuesday, and both women will be buried in their hometowns. British banker Rurik Jutting has been charged with murder in both women's deaths, and a judge has adjourned proceedings in his case while awaiting psychiatric assessments. Ningsih and Mujiasih were among more than 160,000 Indonesians, mostly women, working in Hong Kong as maid, nannies and housekeepers.
