  • PNG Police arrest Iranian Kurdish journalist and asylum seeker Behrouz Boochani

"UNHCR reminds Australia of its obligation to take full responsibility and provide effective protection, safety and lasting solutions for all refugees and asylum-seekers in cooperation with the Papua New Guinean authorities", said UNHCR Assistant High Commissioner for Protection Volker Turk.

"The situation is unfolding, so it's unclear how many men have been moved", she added.

"Saying "move, move." Too much tension and too scary", he tweeted.

Immigration Minister Peter Dutton confirmed a PNG police operation is underway to remove those remaining in the mothballed facility.

"So we are refusing to leave this prison camp because we don't want to live in prison", he said.

'We are blockading right now.

According to the Australian Associated Press, the Governor of Manus Island said locals fear they too will be in danger, so they have armed themselves with knives and other weapons as a precaution.

Boochani, who has served as an eyewitness to the treatment of asylum seekers in detention and as a vocal critic of the Australian immigration policy which placed them there, was lead away from the compound this afternoon.

Australia shut down the Manus Island centre after a PNG court ruled it was unconstitutional, urging asylum seekers to move to transit centres elsewhere on the island.

"PNG authorities have cut food, water and electricity and have told the remaining men they are squatters on defence force property", the ABC says.

"They should obey the law and the lawful authorities of Papua New Guinea", Mr Turnbull said.

"They think that.in some way they can pressure the Australian government to let them come to Australia. Well, we will not be pressured", he told reporters in Canberra.

"It's hard to believe the suffering of people seeking asylum could get any worse after five gruelling years of imprisonment in inadequate facilities under unbearable conditions on Manus, where six men have died since 2013".

Iranian refugee and journalist Behrouz Boochani said PNG authorities were being "guided" by an Australian Federal Police (AFP) officer, a claim the AFP rejected.

Mr Boochani said police were searching rooms, have been taking the men's phones, and saying they have an hour to leave.

Police Chief Superintendent Dominic Kakas said 90 police and immigration officials entered the Manus Island camp on Thursday morning. So far, only 54 have been accepted by the United States.

In 2012, Australia recommenced offshore processing of asylum seekers who arrived by boat, to dissuade human traffickers and prevent hundreds from drowning at sea, and promised to never settle them in Australia.

The camps' conditions have been slammed by human rights groups amid reports of widespread abuse, self-harm and mental health problems. Refugees have been attacked and seriously injured by some members of the local population, who have made clear they do not want the men on Manus Island at all.

The Australian Medical Association on Sunday called on Canberra to allow doctors to help the refugees, warning there was a "worsening and more risky situation emerging on Manus".
