Forty Sri Lankans who attempted to illegally enter Australia have been captured in Indonesia.

They have been stranded, in the Sumatran province of Aceh after the engine of their boat broke down.

Authorities said the boat measuring 17 meters in length and five meters in width was on its way to Australia from Sri Lanka.

The immigrants are in good health.

However, they cannot disembark the boat yet and are waiting for permission from the immigration office.
