Female priest strip searched for drugs and firearms following sit-in

From Australia-

A female priest claims to have been strip-searched following a sit-in protest at Foreign Minister Julie Bishop's Subiaco electoral office on Wednesday.

Anglican priest, the Reverend Lorna Green, said she was outraged to be stripped naked and searched for drugs and firearms.

Rev Green was among a group protesting at the alleged transfer to Nauru of a number of asylum-seeking mothers, family members and new-borns who had been brought to Australia from detention centres for the births.

She said they were simply buzzed in at Ms Bishop's offices, where they sat and prayed while police tried to get them to leave.
