Navy intercepts another asylum-seekers boat

November 10, 2012

AUSTRALIAN authorities have intercepted a boat carrying 48 suspected asylum seekers.

HMAS Childers stopped the boat northwest of Christmas Island this morning after it was spotted from the air.

Initial indications suggest there are 48 people aboard. The passengers will be transferred to Christmas Island for security, health and identity checks.

Yesterday, the Gillard Government announced two boat arrivals, one carrying 75 people and the other carrying 54 people.

About 950 people have arrived on 18 boats in the first 10 days of November.
