Award-winning cartoonist escapes Manus Island

Ali Dorani, known as Eaten Fish, fled Iran in 2013 and was detained by Australia on Manus Island in January the following year.

His cartoons documented the harsh conditions in the detention centre and were published widely in newspapers, including theĀ Washington Post, earning him a Voltaire free speech award and a prize for courage from the Cartoonists Rights Network.

In a statement, Mr Dorani thanked his supporters and said he was thinking about his friends still on Manus and in Port Moresby.
