Arrests expected within days for the murder of Reza Barati

“Manus Island police say they are poised to charge several men with the murder of Reza Barati, the asylum seeker killed in a violent confrontation at the island’s detention centre.

Despite concerns about tensions in the centre, some of the suspects in Mr Barati’s death are believed to be still working there alongside many other staff thought to have taken part in the violence.

The revelations came as further claims emerged about the clashes, including how desperate asylum seekers tried to tie bed sheets to the door handles in their rooms to prevent their attackers getting in.”
