“They hit us, they started hitting us,” a woman’s voice yells over a fracas in a disturbing video, which reportedly came from Nauru overnight on Wednesday.
“They hit all the kids,” she says.
Refugee advocates claim the footage was taken from inside the family compound of the Nauru detention facility during violent clashes between guards and detainees. Screaming can be heard.
Wilson Security staff allegedly lashed out at teenagers in the compound, “punching, kicking and pushing” them, but others, including women and children, were also pushed over by the guards.
