The intercepted yesterday two more ships carrying illegal immigrants to Western Australia. The first ship, carrying some 140 men, women and children, was escorted to Christmas Island. The second vessel with 200 illegal passengers was discovered near the Ashmore Reef the same day. Both ships were not seaworthy. Their passengers were transferred to detention centres in mainland Australia. All illegal immigrants seem to be coming from the Middle East.
