ROUGH CUT. NO REPORTER NARRATION. Refugees and asylum seekers on Papua New Guinea's Manus Island protested on Friday (November 3), three days after Australia cut off food, water and health services to about 600 detainees. Protesters called on the international community to come to their aid as they complained about the long detention period and said they did not feel safe. Protesters demanded to go to New Zealand after Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said she would offer to take 150 refugees held by Australia when she met her Australian counterpart Malcolm Turnbull on Sunday (October 29). The United Nations human rights office called on Australia on Friday to restore food, water and health services to detainees.
