Papua New Guinea immigration officials have started dismantling parts of a prison camp housing hundreds of defiant refugees as an evacuation deadline looms.
Refugees say they have been given two more days to leave after they barricaded themselves inside the camp without food, water, and medicine and refused to leave.
They say they fear for their safety from hostile locals if they relocate.
