The group of 15 Afghans rescued by Indonesian fisherman from their damaged boat are held at a lodging house guarded by police in Sumbawa island on July 12, 2009. The group was part of the 74 asylum seekers, who have been missing since July 8, in treacherous waters near Komodo island en route to Australia, police said. The Indonesian navy had been searching for the boat after being told it had gone missing by Australian police. Indonesia is a transit route for migrants from the Middle East and Asia seeking to travel to Australia in rickety boats with the help of people smugglers.
