Narrow report

I spent the end of 2010 as a guest of Solidarite Mayotte the island's main NGR as a result of my involvement in Australia with French speaking refugees from Rwanda,Burundi and the DR of Congo.There is a large continuing humanitarian problem in this area(4.5m dead,rape on a large scale since 1994).No mention was made in your report of Solidarite and that over 50% of the boat people arriving from east africa through the Comores are accepted as asylum seekers by the French.

More pro-illegal propaganda

Not even SBS could bring themselves to use the "refugee" claim for these illegal immigrants, although they did use "undocumented migrants". I suppose their next story will be about bank robbers who are described as making "unauthorised withdrawals".
