Australia turns back on West Papuan asylum seekers

Tuesday, September 17, 2013

Earlier in September, seven Papuans arrived in Australia seeking political asylum following their involvement with a ‘freedom flotilla’, but they were quickly transferred to PNG. Meanwhile, a Catholic brother in West Papua reported that one person was killed and two injured when police shot at villagers who refused to cut their hair and beards. The PM of Vanuatu has requested the UN to revisit its role in the history of the troubled province.
