United Nations urges humane approach to Manus Island crisis

Papua New Guinea officials deployed police vehicles and buses around a shuttered Australian refugee camp on Monday as a deadline passed for some 400 detainees to move from the controversial center.

They said they had exhausted their food supplies and were relying on rainwater to drink.

The Catholic Bishop Conference is calling on the PNG and Australian Government to assist the 492 refugees and asylum seekers in Manus with basic needs.

The power and water have been turned off but hundreds of men remain barricaded inside.

"For the mean time, the PNG and Australia government should supply food, water, electricity and medicines to the refugees and asylum seekers".

The potential engagement comes as she continues to dodge speculation that she is pregnant with her first child with the rapper. The source says Kim's surrogate did not attend the shower, which was planned by Mindy Weiss.

"What Australia is doing is inhumane and that is why we are here locking down the Australian High Commission".

Commander Yapu said about 100 men left the centre over the weekend. They already demolished our shelters.

The Detention Centre remains restricted to the public and media personnel.

Asked about reports that Papua New Guinean authorities will soon remove the men from the centre, Ms Ardern said she would once again raise her country's offer to take refugees from Manus Island with Mr Turnbull.

Australia has used the Manus island center, and another on the tiny Pacific island of Nauru, to detain asylum seekers who try to reach its shores by boat.

Morteza Saffari, a member of Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Commission, said, "The Australian government, despite all its apparent support for human rights, has made it very hard for those taking refuge there and pays no attention to human rights [of those concerned] whatsoever", ICANA reported on Saturday.

"The current situation at the MRPC and on Manus Island is now totally out of control and fears of a looming "bloodbath" are mounting by the day".

Ms Ardern has continued to push New Zealand's offer to accept 150 refugees and asylum seekers from Australia's offshore detention centres since her first face-to-face meeting with her Australian counterpart in Sydney a week ago. "No matter what label you put on it there is absolute need and there is harm being done", she said.

But he said none of the refugees agreed to move yesterday to alternative facilities in the island's main town. I think it's clear that we don't see what's happening there as acceptable, that's why the offer's there'.
