Three asylum seekers died after setting out on a makeshift raft from a sinking asylum seeker boat in 2013 in a desperate bid to get help, an inquest in the Perth Coroner's Court has heard.

The plight of the men, Mohammad Hassan, 21, Mohammad Noor, 20 and a man known as Mr Sabibullah, had come to the court's attention because the administrator of the island wanted to nominate them for a bravery award.
