Australia to check Nauru 'concentration camp' claim


 Immigration Minister Brendan O'Connor Wednesday vowed to visit Australia's refugee centre on Nauru as a priority after a nurse likened it to a "concentration camp" where she had witnessed attempted suicides.

Marianne Evers, a veteran nurse who worked at the remote Pacific camp for three weeks last year, said she had repeatedly seen detainees self-harming and been told of assaults before she quit.

"I actually liken it to a concentration camp, but the Australians don't have the guts to kill these people and put them out of their misery, because miserable it is," she told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.
