It also found that staff from security company G4S took part in the violence, and accused Australia’s immigration minister of misleading the public to cast blame on the riot’s victims, Reuters said.

Offshore detention centres in Papua New Guinea and the South Pacific island nation of Nauru are used to process would-be refugees trying to reach the country.
