Corby loses sentence appeal

Convicted Australian drug smuggler Schapelle Corby has lost a final appeal to have her jail sentence reduced.

Indonesia's Supreme Court has ruled that the original 20-year jail sentence should stand.

Corby is serving the sentence at Kerobokan jail in Bali after more than four kilograms of marijuana was found in her bodyboard bag at Denpasar Airport in 2004.

Her best hope for an early return home may be through a prisoner transfer treaty being negotiated with Indonesia.
