Little unsurprised by detainees actions

Riot police are moving to restore order at the Christmas Island detention centre following unrest sparked by the death of an asylum seeker. Labour leader Andrew Little said it wasn't surprising detainees had reacted in this way. "When you treat people this way and have them on the back foot for so long, with a sense of no hope and desperation, people behave in all sorts of weird and wonderful ways and I think that's what we're seeing now."
