Nauru de­ten­tion cen­tre: An­other at­tempt at self-im­mo­la­tion

Fiji Sun - - World News -


An­other Ira­nian asy­lum seeker held by Aus­tralia on Nauru has re­port­edly tried to set him­self on fire be­fore se­cu­rity guards man­aged to stop him. The Aus­tralia-based Refugee Ac­tion Coali­tion told AAP that the man aged in his 20s doused him­self in petrol at the Nauru de­ten­tion cen­tre on Sun­day night. Po­lice de­tained him briefly and then re­leased him. Last week, a 23-year-old Ira­nian man set him­self on fire and later died from the burns in a Bris­bane hospital. RNZI
