Australia agrees to close Asylum centre

Australia has agreed to close a controversial asylum centre in Papua New Guinea (PNG)

PNG Prime Minister Peter O'Neill said in a statement he had met Australia's immigration minister, Peter Dutton, in Port Moresby on Wednesday.
"Both PNG and Australia are in agreement that Manus Island centre is to be closed," the statement said.
PNG's High Court found in April that detaining asylum seekers and refugees at the centre was unconstitutional.
More about this will be updated shortly, stay tuned!!!!
