Monday, December 18, 2017

Thirty men, woman and children fleeing gang violence in El Salvador have been granted asylum in Australia by the Turnbull government.

The seven families are the first to arrive in Australia from Central American as refugees under a deal struck by Prime Minster Malcolm Turnbull and then US president Barack Obama last year.
