JAKARTA, Indonesia — Indonesia's president asked for help for two activists shot during the fatal Israeli raid on an aid flotilla heading for Gaza because the world's most populous Islamic nation does not have diplomatic ties with Israel.

Two Indonesian men were seriously wounded and being treated in a hospital in Israel after one was shot in the chest and the other in the leg and hand, President Susilo Bambang told a news conference in the capital Jakarta."We don't have diplomatic relations with Israel, but we have asked the Jordanian government and other parties to ensure that they will be well taken care of," Yudhoyono said.

Ten Indonesians were among 124 activists from Muslim nations without diplomatic relations with Israel deported to Jordan before sunrise Wednesday.
