Sri Lankan refugees to be resettled while more wait

The last of a group of 78 Sri Lankan asylum seekers involved in a stand-off on an Australian customs ship have now left Indonesia.

The refugees were intercepted in Indonesian waters last year as they tried to reach Australia.

They are now to be resettled in Australia and the Philippines.
