Australia's prime minister has called a royal commission after a TV investigation showed prison guards assaulting boys in juvenile detention.
The Four Corners programme showed footage of teenage offenders stripped naked, assaulted and tear gassed.
One of the boys was hooded and cuffed to a mechanical restraint chair wearing a "spit hood".
The Northern Territory's Attorney General John Elferink has been stripped of his corrections portfolio.
The report raised questions about an institutionalised culture of abuse at corrections centres in the Northern Territory, an administrative district that covers a large part of Australia's north.
Barrister John Lawrence compared the treatment of the children to Guantanamo Bay.

Hello my name is Nora and I am not famous. I blog a bit. Write poetry and take pictures. I create found collage art. I am opinionated but educated beyond my wildest dreams. If I am wrong I will admit it as soon as I realize it & that is not a long wait. I know lots of stuff since I read....books, periodicals, magazines. I have had an interesting life and been around the block a time or two. I doubt if my ripples go farther than my own page. However, I am as swell as any of the 1% that are followed and most likely more interesting than anyone under 21 famous or not. That said have a great evening. See ya around!
There is only one success - to be able to spend your life in your own way, and not to give others absurd maddening claims upon it.
