Refugee row

African Independent - - NEWS -

SYD­NEY: The UN refugee agency ac­cused Aus­tralia on Mon­day of reneg­ing on an agree­ment to set­tle some asy­lum seek­ers held in off­shore de­ten­tion cen­tres, but Canberra said no such agree­ment ex­isted. Aus­tralia takes a hard line on asy­lum seek­ers, with those in­ter­cepted at sea sent to camps on the tiny South Pa­cific is­land of Nauru and Pa­pua New Guinea’s Manus Is­land and told they will never be set­tled in Aus­tralia. – Reuters
