"Immigration department chief Michael Pezzullo says the government is closer to a deal to resettle asylum seekers on Nauru and Manus Island. But he's declined to confirm reports about 1800 asylum seeker boat arrivals at Australia's offshore detention centres could be about to be resettled under a deal with the United States. The Australian newspaper reported on Friday the two countries were poised to announce a deal after months of negotiations." (11/10/16)
