HMAS Larrakia intercepted the boat northwest of Ashmore Islands on Sunday night (AEDT).

The 98 passengers and three crew will be transferred to Christmas Island for health and security checks.

Under the federal government’s new offshore processing regime, they could be sent to Nauru or Papua New Guinea’s Manus Island.
