Yaren (Agenzia Fides) - A Committee of the Australian Senate has just presented a document that defines the "inadequate, inappropriate and unsafe" living conditions of asylum seekers at the detention center in Nauru. On July 31, there were 637 immigrants, including 87 children and 111 women. To address this serious emergency, the opposition and various civil society organizations in Australia have called for the immediate release of families with children. (AP) (Agenzia Fides 01/09/2015)
