Welcome to the Voice of America's News Words.
This news word involves the story of refugees coming to the Australian island of Nauru.
In a joint investigation, Amnesty and Human Rights Watch describe the conditions of Nauru as inhuman. They accused the Australian government of deliberately inflicting suffering on people seeking safety and freedom.
Deliberately means something done on purpose. In Australia, the investigators' report says the government was treating refugees badly for the purpose of stopping others from arriving. Deliberately also means something that is done slowly and carefully.
