Ardern admits she may be seen as "an irritant" over Manus Island

PNG's Supreme Court has blocked a move to restore basic services to Manus Island detention centre

Australian authorities have begun destroying shelters and water supplies of refugees who are refusing to leave a decommissioned immigration camp on Manus Island in Papua New Guinea.

Manus Island refugees said they were advised on Saturday by officials their eviction deadline would be extended another 24-hours, by which point they would be forcibly removed from the processing camp which had been without food, water or medical supplies for almost two weeks.

Sources say about 450 men have barricaded themselves into the center and have been living without food, water, and power for over 13 days.

Al Jazeera's Mereana Hond reports. "The refugees are only watching them", he said.

He said he doesn't know if that friendship will develop, but added it would be "very, very nice if it did". It's odd, one minute Kim is talking about nuclear war, testing missiles, then he calls Trump "old".

The men - who have refused to move to three transit centers - come from war-torn countries including Afghanistan, Myanmar, and Syria.

But he said none of the refugees agreed to move yesterday to alternative facilities in the island's main town.

Yemen fired Iranian missile at Saudis
Referring to the Saudi claim, the French President had raised the prospect of possible sanctions with regard to those activities. He emphasized that France must persuade its Persian Gulf allies to pursue "wise and unsentimental" policies and approaches.

"The refugees are watching them fearfully...(they) are extremely scared by immigration threat but still saying we will not leave this prison camp for another prison camp", he said. Instead, the government brought them to Manus Island as part of their "Pacific Solution" policy of preventing any people fleeing war or persecution from reaching safety in Australia if they seek asylum by boat.

New Zealand has had on the table for several years an offer to take 150 refugees from Australian-run offshore detention centres each year.

"I see the human face of this and I see the need and the role New Zealand needs to play". "No matter what label you put on it there is absolute need and there is harm being done".

"I will be raising with Prime Minister Turnbull, as I have consistently done, that we have grave concerns over the situation on Manus Island but also for the refugees on Nauru, and that our hope is to lend a hand as far as we are able in helping resolve this situation".

Meanwhile, in Group A, Tunisia played out a tense goalless draw with Libya to edge Congo DR to top spot by just one point. Morocco captain Medhi Benatia was on target in a 2-0 over Ivory Coast to book their spot in Russian Federation .

Speaking at the APEC Summit in Vietnam on Saturday local time, the Prime Minister of New Zealand said the unfolding stand-off between refugees and PNG immigration officials was unacceptable. I think it's clear that we don't see what's happening there as acceptable, that's why the offer's there'.
