The Age reports
About 200 detainees at Sydney's Villawood detention centre are on a hunger strike to highlight the plight of refugees in the lead-up to the election, Refugee Action Coalition spokesman Ian Rintoul said.

The hunger strike began on Tuesday night and the group plans to continue the protest until Saturday.
