A major disturbance has erupted at Wickham Point Detention Centre, in Darwin, Australia, with 20 inmates reportedly harming themselves to prevent their transfer to Nauru Island.
The information comes from an asylum seeker, according to ABC News Australia. Police have confirmed they received a call from the facility, and were on their way to the scene. A woman who says she saw people harming themselves is now at Royal Darwin Hospital.
Police responded to the mayhem at the facility just before 4pm local time (6:30am GMT), following reports of inmates damaging property and rioting, according to a police spokeswoman.
