Unfolding incident: The boat was on its way to Christmas Island (User submitted: Scott Fisher)



Recent boat arrivals in Australia The Prime Minister's office has confirmed there is a "serious unfolding incident" on board a boat carrying around 49 asylum seekers to Christmas Island.

A Royal Darwin Hospital spokeswoman says the hospital has been told three people are dead, two are missing, and there are 46 "casualties" after an explosion.

She was unsure if the explosion had happened on the asylum-seekers' boat or on the Royal Australian Navy vessel which was escorting it to Christmas Island.

The Royal Darwin Hospital's National Critical Care and Trauma Unit is on high alert for the expected arrival of casualties.

The boat was intercepted near Ashmore Island off the north-west coast of Western Australia yesterday and is believed to be carrying 49 people from Afghanistan.

It is the sixth boat to arrive in Australian waters this year.

Mass casualties expected: A sign outside Broome Hospital as medics wait for the injured to arrive (ABC)

 


Recent boat arrivals in Australia Western Australian police say three people are dead and two are missing following an explosion on board an asylum-seekers' boat being escorted to Christmas Island this morning.

Hospitals in Darwin and Broome have been told to expect an influx of casualties amid reports that at least 46 people have been injured.

Minister for Home Affairs Bob Debus confirmed there was an explosion or serious fire on board the boat but did not provide details on the extent of the casualties. He says the HMAS Childers and the HMAS Albany are on the scene to give assistance.

The vessel was being escorted by a Royal Australian Navy boat after being intercepted near Ashmore Island more than 800 kilometres off the north-west coast of WA yesterday.

WA police say the stricken vessel will be towed into Darwin.

A Royal Darwin Hospital spokeswoman says the hospital has been told three people are dead, two are missing, and there are 46 "casualties".

The Hospital's National Critical Care and Trauma Unit is on high alert for the expected arrival of the injured.

Western Australia's Broome Hospital and Royal Flying Doctor Service have also been placed on alert. Doctors in Broome have been told to prepare for a significant number of injured people who are expected to arrive at around 11:00am AWST.

The Prime Minister's office has confirmed there is a "serious unfolding incident" on board the boat. The Federal Government is expected to make a statement on the incident shortly.

The vessel is the sixth such boat to arrive in Australian waters this year.

This is typical of the attitude from Aussies about the new invasion....



I really think that the plan to burn the boat didn't turn out as planned .

Sure the boat was to burn , but the explosion was not in their planning !



Asylum seeker injuries severe: doctor
Friday Apr 17, 2009
Asylum seekers caught in yesterday's boat blast sustained injuries similar to those seen in the aftermath of the Bali bombings, a doctor says.


Has succeeded, really. They will never be able to get rid of any of that bunch, and how much has airlifting the poor little dears around our hospitals in half the country cost us.

You can imagine the sob-story lawyers if we ever even tried to deport one of the poor traumatised exploding boat people.


**** theyre sleazy scamming cunts, before they even enter the country they have conspired a fraud.

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.

I`m sick of all the excuses given for more queue jumpers arriving, how about a reality check,
they admit they`ve tried to come legally and rejected, they can jetset via Pakistan and Dubai to
countries like Malaysia before getting to Indonesia, the International body for refugees state they
must apply for refugee status in the first country they arrive in after leaving the country they
claim is unsafe... ALL THESE COUNTRIES QUALIFY!
The can pay upto $16000 each to people smugglers, they are hardly poor refugees, they try to
Enter Australia (and actually Demand we accept them) for economic and financial reasons, this
last lot are going to be a financial burden on us for years, and you can bet the Government will
accept them and the next step will be they will want family members still in Afghanistan fast
tracked to Australia to support them emotionally,.. and the Government will do just that....
Until we start deporting illegals the boats will keep coming, and calling the people smugglers
scum without including the fact without the arrogant queue jumpers the scum wouldn`t exists is
putting the cart infront of the horse

members,

I have a very close friend, born in Australian of Portuguese parentage....when she was 5, her parents were homesick for Sth Africa, [or the mother was] so they went back there where my friend grew up and married....well, eventually they wanted to all come to Australia since they still held Australian citizenship and Sth Africa's social problems were getting out of hand and they saw no future there.....well, about 4 yrs ago, my friends was homesick for Sth Africa so she went back to make another go of it, [against everyones wishes] got ripped off her thousands and came back to Australia to start life YET again...

When she got back and saw all the blacks from Africa over at Kardinya's K-Mart...absolutely everywhere, she was so shocked and I told her that we now have many here from Africa and she rolled her eyes and said, "you're asking for nothing but trouble inviting them here,"...

In my city, the blecks are going into people's yards and stripping their Khatt trees of leaves....they just walk right on in their yards 24/7 and climb their trees looking for the drug and now many of the tree owners are cutting them down...trees that are 50 yrs old....these blecks from Africa even cause some violence on the home owners trying to get their hands on the Khatt tree leaves.

they've formed gangs in my city and are fighting with abos and Asians and Maoris and god know what else.

I am personally phucked off that we've turned Australia into another dump....really, this is so wrong on so many levels.

We're NOT a leading nation and we could have been...to me, we could have been the best country on the planet.

I am NOT against immigrant families, [with the emphasis on families] from all over the world...

I actually KNOW Asians who returned home because they don't like Australia....Australia isn't for everyone....there are only two types that want in here from overseas [ususally] and that is the very rich and there very poor.....the middle classes from whatever country LIKE their own countries and so that should be...and are happy to stay in their own countries.

The actor Dr Haing S. Ngor who starred in the movie "The Killing Fields" [now deceased was really a hero]....he worked in his own country helping at the refugee camps when he could have just as easily lived in Hollywood from his money and fame...he wanted to help his fellow countrymen and women...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haing_S._Ngor

See, it is people like him that should be admired....the Fred Hollows of Cambodia, I call him.

And just look what they've turned around and done to Oprah's attempts at educating the girls in Sth Africa with her school....the lezbos attacking the kids....there is no hope for Africa, I feel...and bringing them here won't help us..
