A detention centre in Western Australia has erupted into chaos 10 days after a man was stabbed to death.
Masked riot police stormed Yongah Hill Detention Centre as inmates turned violent and the entire compound sent into lockdown.
Footage shows one detainee swinging a weapon and another being whisked away by security, before the riot squad swoops in and takes two inmates into custody.
Ian Rintoul from the Refugee Action Coalition criticised authorities.
“I think we’ve seen an unnecessary, very heavy-handed police response that’s only aggravated the tensions and anxieties of people inside Yongah Hill,” he said.
This time no one is believed to have been hurt.
Australian Border Force is investigating.
