Hong Kong murders: Tracing victim Sumarti Ningsih's journey

A British banker charged with the murder of two Indonesian women in Hong Kong, is due in court for his second hearing later on Monday.

Rurik Jutting is accused of killing Sumarti Ningsih and Seneng Mujiasi who were thought to be working illegally in Hong Kong as sex workers.

There are several hundred thousand Indonesian workers in Hong Kong, most of them there legally, working as domestic workers.

But some take another route.

The BBC's Indonesia Editor Karishma Vaswani traced the journey from Indonesia to Hong Kong of Sumarti and those like her.
