Heavy metal refugee

Heavy metal

4BC Drive: Could Australia soon have its first heavy-metal refugee?

A 28-year-old man detained at Manus Island says he fled to Australia after being an underground metal drummer in Iran, where executions are ''as common as eating a piece of cake''.

He said he finally fled Iran after 60 heavy-metal fans were arrested at an unauthorised concert, and music teachers were arrested and jailed.

Bianca Hall, Immigration Correspondent for Fairfax, joins Gary Hardgrave with the refugee's story.
