Refugee who set himself alight will come to Australia

A REFUGEE who set himself on fire on Tuesday in a political protest was evacuated from Nauru yesterday for medical treatment in Australia.

Immigration Minister Peter Dutton said the 23-year-old Iranian's condition was "very serious".

"People will come from Nauru for medical assistance if required and they will go back," he told 2GB's Ray Hadley.

"I sent three people back to Nauru this week and that needs to be a very clear message."
