UN refugee chief condemns UK’s Rwanda asylum plan

The head of the UN refugee agency has condemned plans by Britain to send a first flight of asylum seekers to Rwanda on Tuesday.

Filippo Grandi said the policy set a catastrophic precedent.

He said other countries who took in far more asylum seekers than Britain could decide to follow its example.

Courts in London have rejected two last-minute challenges to the new policy.

The British government argues that the move is designed to deter people-trafficking, but there’s been widespread criticism by opposition parties and rights groups.

Hundreds of protesters gathered outside the Home Office.
