Reports from Papua New Guinea's Manus Island say a refugee detained there has died.
The man is understood to have taken his own life.
A Kurdish journalist who is among those detained on Manus, Behrouz Boochani said other refugees found the man's body this morning.
Mr Boochani said the man had been sick for a long time.
The Guardian reported the man's body was found in a forested area near the East Lorengau refugee transit centre.
It reported he had been suffering an acute mental health crisis for more than a year.
The Manus provincial police chief, Inspector David Yapu, confirmed the death and said a crime scene had been established.
