CANBERRA—Australians have been shocked by the mouth-sewing protest in which 64 hunger strikers, including several teenagers, symbolically sewed their lips together with a strand of cotton.

Three Afghan teenagers are in a hospital suffering from dehydration and seven other detainees were rushed there on Tuesday after swallowing shampoo and painkillers. The protests are being held by Afghan refugees in a response to a processing freeze at a detention center after they sought asylum there.

A spokesman for the referees told reporters, “Mmmm mnnmnm mnnnm mmmnn, mnm!”
