Protests Grow at Christmas Island Immigration Detention Centre over Villawood Suicide

The ABC reports the number of prisoners taking part in a protest at the Christmas Island immigration detention centre has increased to 180. Some of the prisoners are reported to have sewn their lips together. 60 prisoners were taking part in the protest last night.

The prisoners are reported to be protesting after the death of a man at the Villawood immigration detention centre in Sydney last week. The ABC says the man killed himself.
