The territory is "owned" by Australia. The refugees are coming from Indonesia. The refugees are trying to get to Christmas Island to get away from the asylums they were sentenced to. The only person responsible for taking care of the refugees is themselves. The refugees that survived will either be sent back to their asylums or live on the island.

Christmas Island is a territory in the Indian Ocean that is currently owned by Australia. The "refugees" mostly came from Iraq and Iran. The "refugees" are trying to get to Christmas Island because they wanted get out of their own country. The "refugees'" lives were held responsible by themselves and the navy. I think they will either be sent back or held prisoner or welcome to the country.

Christmas Island is located in the Indian Ocean and is currently an Australian territory. The "refugees" from the video are from Iraq and Iran. They were trying to go Christmas Island because they were trying to escape their country because they were afraid that they would have been killed if they stayed there. The people that were responsible for the refugees was themselves and the Navy. I think that the Navy was responsible because it's their job to retain their borders. I think that the people would be either sent back or kept in prison.

Christmas Island is in Australia and Britain owns it.

The refugees came from Indonesia, Iraqi and Iran.

Their trying to get to Christmas Island to get away from Indonesia.

No one is really responsible for taking care of the refuges because their trying to get away from their country and their immigrants to Australia so no one really is responsible for them but themselves.If people help them its people that care to save them,but no one is responsible for them because it was their idea to leave their country.

I think that the refuges that survived will probably be sent back to their country.

1-Christmas Island is a island located in Australia. The British own it.
2-The refugees came from Indonesia,iraqi, and Iranian.
3-They are trying to get to Christmas Island to get away from there own place.
4-In a way I believe the British navy was responsible because the refugees were located inside there nation when this happened. So they should of taken place when they found out the boat was around.
5-I think that the refugees who survived are going to get sent back to where they came from because they have intruded and cause a disaster even though it wasnt there fault.

Christmas Island is owned by Australia. The rufugees came from Indonesia. The rufugees are trying to get to Christmas Island so they can getaway from the asylums they were sentenced to . the rufugees are responsible for themselves. The rufugees that survived will be sent back to live on the island.

The territory is "owned" by Australia. The refugees are coming from Indonesia. The refugees were trying to get away from the asylums they were assigned to. They only person responsible for the refugees is their selves. The refugees that survived will either be sent back, killed, or live on the island.
