Aborigines flee from Northern territory to escape torture

Darwin,  Northern Territory, Australia

A group of about 100 aborigines fled from the riot-torn town of Yuendumu in their vehicles or buses and landed up 1800-Km away in Adelaide putting the authorities there in a spot of bother. Some of them arrived without any baggage. These Warlpiri people had children among them and had to be housed and looked after. In one house, as many as 30 persons had to be accommodated along with their luggage. There was no time for advance preparation. The administration of Adelaide is blaming the Northern territory authorities for keeping them in the dark. The NT authorities deny any wrong doing saying that the persons were not sent but had decided to relocate to Adelaide on their own.
