PHNOM PENH -- Indonesia has been accused of violating the human rights of an oil tanker crew in an escalating international dispute over a $21 million cargo of crude that Cambodia says has been stolen.

The Bahamas-flagged tanker Strovolos, estimated to be carrying nearly 300,000 barrels of crude from Cambodia's ill-fated first oil venture, was seized by Indonesia's navy off the country's coast in July.
