Cambodia agrees to take more refugees from Nauru

This is despite having indicated earlier it would pull out of the controversial resettlement agreement having taken in only four people.

The Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen has held talks with Australia's immigration minister, Peter Dutton, and both have agreed to stick to the plan to take small numbers of refugees from Nauru on a voluntary basis.

Cambodia said it wanted more refugees in groups of four to five at a time and would send a team to Nauru to interview more detainees.
