Papua New Guinea police have evicted the remaining 328 men from the former Australian-run camp on Friday, and in some cases by force.

Footage shot by refugees appears to show police and Papua New Guinean immigration officers hitting refugees with metal bars.

One refugee told Al Jazeera he was “beaten with wooden and iron bars”.

Al Jazeera’s Andrew Thomas reports from Manus Island.
