Germany sends 8 convicted Afghans back home

Germany sends 8 convicted Afghans back home

Sep 13, 2017 - 20:10

KABUL (Pajhwok): The authorities in Germany have deported eight Afghan nationals back to their home country after their asylum applications were rejected.

The men were all convicted criminals and at least two were convicted of rape, said Bavaria's interior minister Joachim Herrmann.

Wednesday's expulsion is the first since Germany stopped deportation flights to Afghanistan following a bomb attack that partially destroyed the German embassy in Kabul on May 31.

More than 100 Afghans died in the attack, prompting refugee support groups to call for a halt to deportations on security grounds.
