Iranian refugee 'locked in urine soaked cell for 30 hrs'

AN Iranian asylum seeker detained on Nauru has made a report about his alleged mistreatment by Nauruan police to the United Nations human rights agency.

The man claims he was detained for more than 30 hours in a bare police cell that was wet with the urine of his guards.

The man has told the ABC and staff from the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights that he was arrested and detained without charge after trying to see his sister.

She had just tried for the second time to kill herself after being allegedly raped on the island in May.

The woman has since been transferred to Brisbane in a serious condition while her brother and mother have remained on Nauru.
