[Update] CALLS FOR HELP FROM NAURU.
Fighting has broken out. Reports of officers hitting children as well as men and women. This began when seven boys who wrote a letter to Immigration expressing concerns and raising questions about their detention were called to the Border Force tent to receive an official reply. When the boys reacted angrily to the response they were given some officers came in and began hitting and kicking them. The fighting then spread to others in the camp, with reports of officers hitting out randomly and swearing at detainees. Many of the officers left the camp and the gates were locked.
