A group of human rights organizations has demanded the Australian government remove all child asylum seekers held on the Pacific island of Nauru.
 
It comes as reports of a 12-year-old boy on a weeks-long hunger strike fuelled fresh fears about their health.
 
The #KidsOffNauru coalition wants the 119 children on the island resettled by November.
 
Australia's controversial offshore detention policy has been criticised for its toll on asylum seekers.
 
The facility on Nauru was established under the country's hardline immigration policy, which sees asylum seekers who try to reach the country by boat processed at offshore centres.
