    A South African court has ordered the eviction of hundreds of refugees and asylum seekers living in a church in Cape Town.

    But they are refusing to leave. Many want to be resettled in another country - and say they no longer feel welcome in South Africa.

    Al Jazeera's Nicolas Haque reports from Cape Town.
