Refugees held by Australia in Papua New Guinea have launched legal action over the closure of a detention center.
 
Australia holds asylum seekers arriving by boat in camps on PNG's Manus Island and the small Pacific nation of Nauru.
 
The Manus Island center is scheduled to close today (31) after a PNG court ruled it was unconstitutional.
 
Detainees argue the closure will breach their human rights by denying them access to water, electricity, and security. Many are refusing to leave.
