Here's boat number 121 for 2010 -

Boat with suspected asylum seekers (invaders) found


Authorities have intercepted a boat carrying more than 100 suspected asylum seekers
(invaders) north of Christmas Island.

The boat, believed to be carrying
116 passengers (invaders) and two crew (smugglers), was intercepted on Wednesday, Home Affairs Minister Brendan O'Connor said in a statement.

The passengers
(invaders) will be transferred to the Christmas Island detention centre where they will undergo health, security and identity checks.

It is the 120th boat arrival for the year.
(WRONG, it is boat number 121 for 2010, the two boats that arrived on October the 8th were NOT one boat!)


So far in November there have been 9 boats carrying 486 invaders and 12 reported smugglers. The tally so far for 2010 on the 17th of November (the 321st day of 2010) is 121 boats carrying 5,805 invaders and 287 reported smugglers.
