SYDNEY (Reuters) - An asylum seeker was killed and at least 77 injured in the second riot this week at a detention center in Papua New Guinea, Australia's immigration minister said on Tuesday.
Iran's foreign ministry said the dead man was an Iranian citizen and called for an investigation into the clash, state news agency IRNA said on Wednesday.
The facility, part of Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott's tough stance against asylum seekers, has come under fire over human rights concerns.
