Indonesia human rights lawyer speaks up

Some people see their ideal job as one that makes a difference. That's the thinking that drove Indonesian Todung Mulya Lubis to becoming a human rights lawyer.

He's been speaking out against his country's death penalty. Indonesia executed four people for drug offences overnight, three of them foreigners.

Mr Lubis had previously defended Australians Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran who were executed last year for drug-smuggling, in a case that grabbed international attention.

Mr Lubis shared with the BBC why he chose this challenging profession.
