Indonesia prostitutes resist red-light shutdown

Indonesian sex workers hide their faces behind newspapers at a brothel in city's red light district popularly known as Dolly, in Surabaya, East Java, Indonesia. Sex workers and brothel owners still open their brothel even after Surabaya's Mayor Tri Rismahani has officially closed the red-light district and announced plans to redevelop the historic Dolly quarter, said to be South-East Asia's largest.
