Explosion on asylum-seekers' boat was a threat gone wrong, say government sources

AN explosion that ripped apart and sank a boat carrying more than 40 asylum seekers last week, killing five people, was the result of a threat gone tragically wrong, senior government sources say.

The ABC has reported senior sources have confirmed that asylum seekers on board the vessel doused its deck with petrol in an attempt to force the navy to let the boat land in Australia.

They reportedly feared being turned back to Indonesia.

The boat exploded on Thursday near Ashmore Island, northwest of the Australian mainland.

and there is another boat load of 100 on the way...
