Asylum seeker 'hell hole' equipped with exercise equipment, table soccer and catered meals
It used to be called a "hell hole" but the Curtin detention centre in Australia's remote north-west is open for business again.
Nearly 200 Afghan asylum seekers were transferred to Curtin from Christmas Island at the weekend.
There may be no barbed wire, but it is very much like a natural prison, surrounded by scrub and red dirt - the unforgiving landscape of the west Kimberley.
And the facilities seem to be first class, for a "hell hole", at least.
The only remaining possibly damning factor is the facility's isolation. Heaven forbid would be immigrants are forced to temporarily endure the isolated loneliness of bush life experienced by thousands of Australians on an ongoing basis, without government supplied exercise equipment, table soccer, Internet access and catered meals.
