Video shows detainee digging escape tunnel under Yongah Hill Detention Centre in WA

2 monate vor


Detainees at an immigration detention centre in Western Australia have dug a 20-metre-long escape tunnel. Footage shows the tunnel being dug, apparently by hand. Lined with earth, it is just high enough for a person to crouch in. The tunnel ran from underneath an accommodation block at the Yongah Hill detention centre to within 5 metres of the outer perimeter fence. Refugee advocates told the Guardian the tunnel had been built ‘over several months’.
