The U.S. has agreed to resettle refugees being held in Australia's controversial island detention camps.
The number of refugees being resettled was not announced, but reports say the deal would be offered first to those who are most vulnerable, particularly families.
ABC reports Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull also said the deal would apply only to those already on the islands, not new arrivals.
