Australian immigration authorities have said that a stand-off between detainees and police at a migrant detention Centre on Christmas Island has ended.

The immigration department said that all areas of the facility were now under "full and effective control".

The disturbances began on Sunday after a detainee who had escaped the camp was found dead.

Immigration authorities said 5 detainees had non-life-threatening injuries.

Police reinforcements arrived at the detention Centre this morning to restore order.
