Israeli high court orders closure of detention center for African migrants

JERUSALEM (Reuters) – Israel’s high court on Monday outlawed a detention center where African migrants are held without trial and ordered some 2,000 inmates there released over the next three months.

The ruling struck down a measure passed by Israel’s parliament in December to indefinitely incarcerate migrants, most of them from Sudan and Eritrea, in a measure criticized by human rights groups as an attempt to force migrants to leave.
