African asylum seekers say they are being threatened by the Israeli government with deportation to unsafe countries.

    Some African asylum seekers being held in detention in Israel have said they are being threatened with deportation to unsafe countries.

    Written notices given to some Eritreans held in deportation camps said they will be deported to unnamed African countries, thought to be Uganda and Rwanda.

    Al Jazeera's Nisreen El-Shamayleh reports from the Negev region in southern Israel, where deportation notices are being handed to inmates in the Holot detention centre.
