Description: The Australian Navy rescues 144 suspected asylum seekers after their boat capsized off Christmas Island, killing at least four people. Story: iThe Australian Navy rescued one-hundred-and-forty-four suspected asylum seekers off the coast of Christmas Island after their boat capsized, said Home Affairs Minister Jason Clare on Wednesday (July 17). Four bodies were also recovered from the water. The boat was being escorted ashore by two naval vessels, the HMAS Albany and the MHAS Warramunga, when it ran into trouble on Tuesday (July 16). [Jason Clare, Home Affairs Minister]: "At approximately 6pm the vessel began to lean to one side and passengers began jumping into the water. At approximately 6.40pm (HMAS) Albany reported that the vessel had rolled and capsized. A total of six life-rafts were deployed by Albany and (HMAS) Warramunga as well as a P3-Orion aircraft which was overhead. The naval vessels also deployed their small boats to assist in rescuing the people that were in the water." Bad weather had stopped the navy boarding the boat earlier in the day. [Rear Admiral David Johnston, Commander, Border Protection]: "It was always a very difficult environment. The minister mentioned Sea State 4 so that is weather in the order of 2m - 2.5m swells during the morning it had increased briefly to about 4m seas. So extremely difficult weather to conduct operations in both to launch a boat but also to try to get on board another vessel." The deaths come just five days after nine suspected asylum seekers, including a one-year-old baby boy, died when their boat sank en route to Australia. Christmas Island sees an average of one-hundred people a day arriving by boat seeking asylum.

Police reinforcements have been sent to Australia's Christmas Island detention centre to "restore order", officials say, amid reports of a stand-off. In a statement the immigration department said a group of detainees continued to engage in "non-compliant behaviour" overnight. Facilities were damaged and some detainees lit fires, it added. The unrest, which is into its third day, was sparked by the death of a detainee who had escaped the camp. Christmas Island is a remote outpost located 2,650km (1,650 miles) north-west of Perth and 380km south of Java in Indonesia. It is part of Australia's network of offshore processing centres for irregular migrants who arrive by boat, and also houses New Zealanders facing deportation from Australia. Australia is facing renewed criticism from the United Nations over its treatment of asylum seekers. The immigration department said it remains committed to resolving the situation "peacefully and quickly", but it would "take action to protect people and facilities where an imminent threat exists". Reports said a hard core of detainees were still confronting guards and refusing to return to their cells. Detainees not participating in the unrest were moved to a secure part of the facility. Inmate's death 'sparked riot' The unrest started when a group of Iranian inmates staged a protest about the death of an Iranian Kurd, Fazel Chegeni. Mr Chegeni had escaped from the facility on Saturday. His body was found at the bottom of a cliff on Sunday. Ian Rintoul, of the Refugee Action Coalition group, said that Mr Chegeni was "suffering the effects of long-term arbitrary detention". "He had told other detainees that he could no longer stand being in detention," Mr Rintoul said in a statement. But Immigration minister Peter Dutton told parliament he had been advised there were no suspicious circumstances surrounding the death of Mr Chegeni. He also told Australian television that the government will not be "cowered" into making changes to its controversial deportation policy. A detainee at the immigration centre told the BBC inmates were "angry" because they were not getting answers about Mr Chegeni's death. "Matt" said guards had left their posts and that detainees from a compound housing detainees with criminal records tried to enter his compound, where asylum seekers and those with expired visas stay. One inmate, Tuk Whakatutu, is quoted as telling Radio New Zealand that a hard core of protesters, with weapons were in one of the compounds, which had been surrounded by police in riot gear. It is difficult to verify information about what happens on Christmas Island as the media are generally barred from reporting there. The current detention centre at North West Point on Christmas Island opened in 2006. The government outsources running of the centre to private contractor Serco. All 203 detainees are men - around 40 are New Zealanders awaiting deportation after committing crimes and losing their visas. Human rights commissioner Gillian Triggs voiced "grave concerns" for asylum seekers after visit the island in July 2014. All children were transferred off Christmas Island by the end of December 2014. Controversial policy Australia sends intercepted asylum seekers to Christmas Island, Manus Island in Papua New Guinea and Nauru in the South Pacific. The government says the journey the asylum seekers make by sea to reach Australia is dangerous and controlled by criminal gangs and they have a duty to stop it. Critics say opposition to asylum is often racially motivated and is damaging Australia's reputation. The policy was branded a "disaster" by Human Rights Watch's Australia director in July. The group also raised concern over conditions at the Manus camp. Last February, an Iranian man was killed during a riot at the camp on Manus. The trial of a Salvation Army worker and a camp guard accused over his murder restarts later this month. Share this story About sh

They can wait in the detention facilities to be processed for up to years, deprived of many basic human rights, including the right to engage in work and education, social and personal security, privacy, welfare, physical and mental health, freedom from cruel treatment, housing and privacy, and freedom of movement. Every year, approximately 1 million people seek asylum internationally for many reasons including: fleeing from violence, religious, political, and ethnic conflicts [1]. Seeking asylum is a basic human right under the UN Refugee Convention. It is not illegal for someone to seek asylum. We are advocating for policy change of the Migration Act 1958 (Commonwealth) stating that asylum seekers who arrive on the mainland without a valid visa must be held in immigration or community detention, or transferred to an offshore processing facility. We are advocating for: 1. Transfer of asylum seekers from offshore processing facilities to appropriate onshore facilities while they await resettlement in an alternative country or provision of temporary protection visa. Supported by reallocation of funding currently intended for operational costs of offshore facilities. 2. Implementation of apprenticeship/vocational programs for asylum seekers awaiting resettlement while they await resettlement in an alternative country or provision of temporary protection visa. Supported by reallocation of funding currently intended for operational costs of offshore facilities. It is anticipated that implementation of the above strategies would result in greater quality of life for these asylum seekers given evidence supporting onshore processing measures and the provision of employment and training incentives for improved health outcomes for this population group. The transfer from offshore processing facilities is also likely to yield significant cost savings when considering the significant expenditure required for establishing and maintaining facilities for asylum seekers and staff ($316.9 million annually) [2]. We acknowledge that transferring to onshore processing facilities does not fix the issues faced by asylum seekers entirely. However this change will mean the Australian Government will be taking responsibility for the individuals and upholding their human rights. Onshore processing will ensure housing and facilities for asylum seekers reflects the occupational health and safety standards of Australia. And the introduction of an apprenticeship mentoring program will allow for opportunity to engage in meaningful activities, increases in skill acquisition, and an increase in employability once they are processed. This is particularly important as most asylum seekers are processed as refugees: at May 31st, 2016, 77% of Nauru Island and 98% of Papua New Guinea asylum seekers had refugee claims approved [3]. We also acknowledge that transferring to onshore processing facilities and provision of a more supportive physical environment will support the mental health of this population group, where currently those in offshore processing facilities feel unsafe, and a sense of hopelessness. The transfer will allow for improved safety and freedom of violence as the Australian Government will be liable to take responsibility for upholding their human rights within the onshore facilities, as they currently are not in offshore facilities. As global citizens it is our responsibility to support the human rights of all other people, locally and internationally. Let's support those who are fleeing from violence and death in their own countries, and advocate for their rights to be met. References: [1] Asylum-Seekers. (2016). UNHCR.

Gleaming beaches, crystal clear waters, unspoiled culture and no crowds - Explore the 4 least-visited countries in the world TUVALU Tavalu, a tinny land in the South Pacific Ocean is in the first position in the list of the least visited countries in the world. The land has a grand total of only 1,100 tourists a year. If you want visit a land which is going to vanish soon under the ocean waves due to global warming, then plan a trip to Tavalu and be one of the rare travelers. Tourism is not properly developed there mainly because it is very difficult to go there. There are only some irregular and expensive flights from Fiji to land in Tavalu. KIRIBATI - nicknamed as Christmas Island Kiribati is a land in the Pacific Ocean and famous for being one of the best fishing and diving spots in the world. There are only 3,900 tourists per year. It can also be the best place to celebrate the New Year, because in 1999 it was the first place in the earth to welcome in the present new millennium. TAJIKISTAN Tajikistan is one of the best walking places with many spectacular mountains. It receives only 4,000 tourists in a year. The land has a history of having many important Silk Roads and various cultural influences from Hinduism, Islam, Christianity and Buddhism. But the country has one of the world's most difficult bureaucratic visa application processes. This also keeps visitors coming in the land. But taking the trouble of getting Tajikistan visa will be worthy. MARSHALL ISLANDS The island in Pacific Ocean is suffers lack of tourism revenues mainly because of isolation and lack of communication with rest of the world. It gets only a total of 6,000 tourists in a year. Here you can find all exotic views of a Pacific island - lagoons, simple locals, plenty of corals and some real exciting diving spots.

A New Zealand man awaiting deportation from Australia has been arrested after a dramatic standoff with police at Sydney Airport. The man, in his 40's, pulled out a knife and threatened self-harm as he was being taken to a plane headed for the Christmas Island detention centre. His visa was cancelled on so-called character grounds which is usually applied if someone has committed a crime.
