Indonesian airline Garuda under fire for near-naked interview

(THE KOREA HERALD/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - An Indonesian airline came under fire after having female job applicants get almost naked during an interview.

Garuda Indonesia has recently interviewed applicants to pick 18 Korean crew members for its new flight service.

The women were ordered to take off all their clothes except their underpants for a 'health examination'. A male doctor touched their breasts to check whether they have implants, which the company said would endanger them when flying.

The company said it conducted the same examination when picking stewardesses in all countries, including Japan and Australia.
