A compensation payout of Australian $70m by the Australian government to asylum seekers detained in Papua New Guinea has been approved by a judge.

Canberra offered the settlement in June after 1,905 men alleged they had suffered harm in detention on PNG's Manus Island. The government called the deal "prudent", but denied wrongdoing.

Australia sends asylum seekers arriving by boat to PNG and Nauru.

The deal is believed to be Australia's largest human rights settlement.
