    Ms Dhu's death in police custody in Western Australia

    Native Aborginal 22-year-old Ms Dhu (first name not used out of cultural customs) died in South Hedland Police Station, Western Australia, after being held for four weeks over unpaid fines.

    She had been taken to a health Center three times after saying she felt unwell, but was discharged back to jail each time until she died during her third visit, August 4, 2014. Her death has led to widespread protests.

    Now authorities have announced a coroner's inquest will be held in November.

    The inquest is due to be held in South Hedland from November 23 to December 4.

    There have also been calls for an independent inquiry into Miss Dhu's death.

    But Western Australian Attorney-general Michael Mischin rejected those calls last November, saying he believed the state coroner's court could run an investigation.
