Group of Nine at Risk of Persecution in Eritrea

(Beirut, May 15, 2012) – Jordanian authorities are about to deport nine detained Eritrean refugees, including a 7-year-old girl, to Yemen where they risk indefinite detention and possibly deportation to persecution in Eritrea, Human Rights Watch said today. Jordan should allow the group to remain in Jordan and give the United Nations refugee agency access to the refugees, Human Rights Watch said.
