Australia refugee centre could boost Nauru

Residents of South Pacific island hope arrival of asylum seekers for processing will boost economy.

    Hundreds of refugees are being flown to the small Pacific island of Nauru as part of a new immigration policy in Australia.

    Asylum seekers must now be processed offshore.

    It is a controversial move, but people in Nauru are hoping the change will translate into an economic boost.
