August 29, 2018
The August 29 edition of L’Osservatore Romano devoted prominent front-page coverage to the first successful boat entry by asylum seekers into Australia in four years.

The Australian navy has patrolled the coast and deported migrants to Papua New Guinea and Nauru, where some have faced abuse. Peter Dutton, Australia’s minister for home affairs, vowed to deport the migrants.
