Indonesians protest outside Australian embassy over spying

Demonstrations flared in Jakarta Friday in front of the Australian embassy as relations between the two countries continue to sour over spying allegations. Protesters held signs and burned Australian flags and pictures of Prime Minister Tony Abbott. The media reports that set off 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. Indonesia said it is reviewing its relations with Australia. Earlier this week, the Indonesian ambassador was recalled from Canberra. Australia's prime minister has not confirmed the spying nor apologised, but he has expressed regret for the embarrassment the media reports caused to Yudhoyono and his family.
