Australia says last child refugees to leave Nauru camp

Australia said on Sunday that the last child refugees held on the Pacific atoll of Nauru will soon be sent to the US. This ends a harsh asylum-seeker policy which has received major criticism globally. Prime Minister Scott Morrison said the last four asylum-seeker children would soon be resettled with their families in the US. The US agreed in 2016 to accept up to 1,250 refugees.
