BLITAR, INDONESIA 19 : An asylum seekers who survived lying on the bed as got treatment on December 19, 2011 in Blitar, East Java, Indonesia. It is believed that the overloaded fishing boat was carrying around 250 people, mostly from Iran and Afghanistan when it sank off the coast of Indonesia. It is suspected that the boat was bound for Australia. The tragedy is expected to further inflame the debate in Australia as how best to handle the influx of asylum seekers.
