Man charged with tying up Indigenous Australian children

Australian police have charged a 45-year-old man with “aggravated assault” for allegedly binding three young Indigenous children with cable ties after they swam in a pool without permission.

Social media images appeared to show the tearful children – a six-year-old girl and two boys aged seven and eight – with their hands tied together outside a home in Broome, Western Australia, during the incident.

One video on social media, widely broadcast by Australian media, showed locals shouting at a white man on the property, demanding in vain that he release the two youngest children after the eight-year-old had already fled.

The treatment of Indigenous children is particularly sensitive in Australia.

Thousands of Indigenous children were taken from their families and put into foster care with white families or institutions under assimilation policies that continued into the early 1970s.
