Police raid Save the Children offices in Nauru

A police raid on Save the Children offices came as thousands rallied in Australia over the weekend calling for detention camps in Nauru or Papua New Guinea to be closedThe offices of Save the Children workers helping asylum-seekers on the Pacific island of Nauru have been raided by police, the aid agency said Tuesday, as debate rages in Australia over new whistleblower laws. Asylum-seekers attempting to enter Australia by boat are turned back or sent to detention camps on Nauru or Papua New Guinea under Canberra’s tough immigration policy, and are blocked from resettling on the mainland even if found to be refugees. Human rights and refugee advocacy groups have criticised the policy and the conditions in the camps, with some Save the Children staff previously alleging that asylum-seekers at the tiny Pacific outpost were subject to abuse.
