UK appeals court to decide on Rwanda asylum plan

Africa

The UK’s Court of Appeal is set to decide later whether to allow the first flight to depart to Rwanda on Tuesday with asylum seekers.

Last week campaigners and migrants failed to win an injunction against the government in the high court in London.

It’s uncertain how many people will be on board.

The British Home Secretary Priti Patel said the “vast majority” of those who take illegal routes – such as unauthorised boats and stowing away in lorries – will be considered for relocation to Rwanda.

But the move has been criticised by charities and opposition parties.
