A group of Rohingya refugees rescued by fishermen in Indonesian waters has disembarked in the province of Aceh.

Ninety-nine people were on board the vessel, including 28 children.

Human rights groups have praised the local community for their efforts, but say governments in the region must do more to protect Rohingya refugees.
