Refugees’ Outcry

Malta Forced To Cancel Repatriation of African Refugees

Published July 10, 2013

Malta has been forced to cancel the forced return of dozens of Somali migrants to Libya, after an emergency ruling by the European Court of Human Rights. The EU has criticized the attempted repatriation, but Malta has accused its European partners of a lack of solidarity. The disagreement comes after the Pope visited an Italian island earlier this week that has received thousands of migrants. Henry Ridgwell reports from London. (Source: Voice of America)
