Indonesia is demanding an investigation into reports that a domestic worker was allegedly killed by her employer in Saudi Arabia and thrown into a garbage skip - the second case of maid abuse to emerge this week.

President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono was speaking to reporters on Friday after a cabinet meeting called to discuss the need to protect hundreds of thousands of Indonesian migrants who flock to the Middle East in search of work.

Too many of the migrants face slavery-like conditions, torture, sexual abuse and even death, human rights groups say.

Indonesian Minister of Labour Muhaimin Iskandar said on Friday an embassy team was dispatched to the Saudi town of Abha to look into allegations the 36-year-old maid, Kikim Komalasari, had been killed by her bosses.

But, but I thought Arizona is the bad guy here in human rights abuse? Obi One Administration did include them in reports to the UN. Maybe he needs to bow down more to King Abdullah to stop the abuse, that will fix it eh?
