The situation for hundreds of asylum seekers stranded on a Papua New Guinea island is getting worse every day, a United Nations refugee official says, urging Australia to resume its responsibility for them.
Amnesty said the refugees' safety fears were also "well-founded", adding that some had previously been "attacked and seriously injured" by locals "who have made clear they do not want the men on Manus".
PNG authorities began moving on Australia's moth-balled detention centre on Thursday in an attempt to move the roughly 400 men to alternative - but reportedly not-yet-ready - accomodation on the island province. One refugee, a journalist, was detained and released.
According to the Australian Associated Press, the Governor of Manus Island said locals fear they too will be in danger, so they have armed themselves with knives and other weapons as a precaution.
Canberra sends asylum-seekers who try to reach Australia by boat to detention camps in Manus Island and Nauru under a harsh immigration policy, and blocks them from resettling in Australia.
The male-only camp inside a Manus Island navy base was declared closed on October 31 based on the Papua New Guinea Supreme Court's ruling past year that Australia's policy of housing asylum seekers there was unconstitutional.
The detainees said they were fearful of hostility from locals outside the camp, and said the new centres were not fully operational, with a lack of security, sufficient water or electricity.
Dutton described the refugees as " living in squalor" and said it was "outrageous" that any of them remained in the center.
Immigration Minister Peter Dutton confirmed a PNG police operation is underway to remove those remaining in the mothballed facility.
The Sudanese refugee told the BBC a large number of police officers had entered the compound.
