The Australian senate has narrowly approved changes to migration laws that include reintroducing controversial temporary visas for refugees.

The bill will allow refugees to live and work in Australia for three to five years.

It was passed by 34 votes to 32 after intense and sometimes emotional debate in a late-night sitting.

Australia currently detains refugees caught arriving by boat and puts them in camps in Papua New Guinea and Nauru.
