AUSTRALIA - migrants set fire to a detention center

"The prisoners set fire to Villawood," as the newspaper of Sydney after a night of rioting in the Villawood detention center in the suburbs of the capital. Asylum seekers have sparked fires and "forced the guards to retreat," the newspaper said. Nine buildings were burned and hundreds of people allegedly involved in the riots, authorities said.

Several violent uprisings were reported recently in Australian detention centers, as well as suicides.
