Two groups including sixteen Sri Lankan asylum seekers reached Christmas Island in Australia yesterday after a long journey at sea.

The Australian reported that it is believed the Sri Lankan group began its journey before Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd’s July 19th announcement that people arriving by boat without a visa have no hope of being settled in Australia.

Authorities’ initial belief was that the Sri Lankans – including two little girls and a baby – travelled from their home country in the fishing vessel they arrived in, which can take a month.
