Schapelle Corby: Drug trafficker deported from Bali

Convicted Australian drug trafficker Schapelle Corby is being deported from Indonesia after nine years in prison and three years on parole.
The former beauty therapist was arrested in 2004 at Bali airport with 4.2 kg of marijuana hidden in surfing gear, and sentenced the next year.
Her case outraged many Australians, with some viewing her sentence as too harsh, and affected foreign relations between Australia and Indonesia.
She proclaimed innocence throughout.
Hundreds of police officers were deployed to assist with Corby's departure. Her sister Mercedes, who lives in Indonesia, shielded her from journalists' cameras as they walked to a car.
Corby then posted video on Instagram of the media scrum seen behind the vehicle's tinted windows.
She was taken in a convoy from her Bali villa to the airport, to catch a flight to Brisbane.
She also posted a picture of her dogs, saying she would miss them, and of friends she has made in Indonesia.
