After a 10-day search, the Surabaya National Search and Rescue Agency (Basarnas) officially called off its efforts to scour the sea for missing victims of a boat accident involving allegedly illegal immigrants.
The boat carrying more than 200 asylum seekers from the Middle East capsized in Prigi waters off Trenggalek on Dec. 17. They were reportedly heading for Australia.
