Australian PM makes historic visit to indigenous activist's grave

  • Tony Abbott on Monday became the first Australian prime minister to visit the resting place of Indigenous land rights activist Eddie Koiki Mabo, the media reported.

    Abbot visited the grave on Monday on Murray Island in the Torres Strait of northern Queensland state, ABC reported.

    Abbott laid a wreath on Mabo's grave. The activist died in 1992 just months before his 10-year legal battle for native title rights proved successful. (Source: IANS)
