An Australian refugee advocate says up to sixty New Zealanders in the Yongah Hill Immigration Detention Centre near Perth may have gone on hunger strike. Ian Rintoul says a group of men at another centre, Melbourne Immigration Transit Accommodation, or MITA, were earlier also refusing food, but have now ended their protest.
