A Somali refugee who set herself alight in the Nauru detention centre has arrived in Australia for treatment.

21-year-old Hodan Yasin was flown to Brisbane this morning, and taken to the Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital.

She suffered critical injuries on Monday, and was treated at the Nauru hospital by Australian doctors.

A 23-year-old Iranian refugee, Omid Masoumali, set himself on fire last Wednesday and later died after being sent to Australia for treatment.
