Concerns over Australia-Cambodia refugee deal

Many argue that deal by Australia to send asylum seekers to Cambodia damages its own reputation.

    Australia has signed a deal to send asylum seekers to Cambodia.

    Under the agreement, Cambodia will take in an unspecified number of refugees trying to get into Australia, in exchange for $35m.

    Many argue that Australia's deterrent measures toward asylum-seekers comes at the cost of its own reputation.
