Asylum seeker (invader) boat carrying 16 intercepted. Posted from Australian New Nation.
Australian authorities have intercepted a boat of asylum seekers (invaders) north of Christmas Island.
It is believed 14 people (invaders) and two crew members were on the boat when it was stopped by HMAS Bathurst last night.
The asylum seekers (invaders) will be taken to Christmas Island for security, identity and health checks.
It is the fourth boat to be intercepted this year.
"Four boats and 147 invaders in ten days. Not a bad effort considering it's the wet season."
