Youth who fled Taliban held with adults after disputed 'pseudoscience' age test
A federal court found he was 17, but after a dental exam an asylum seeker is held in California with adults who do not speak his languageFirst he fled Afghanistan after his father and brother were murdered by the Taliban. Then he flew to Ecuador on what his lawyers described as a forged passport, and eventually he crossed the southern border into the United States, immediately surrendering to authorities. Now Hamid, who a federal court had determined to be a child, is detained in California with hundreds of adult migrants, terrified and alone, and unable to converse with anyone inside the center as he speaks only Pashto. His lawyers accuse Immigration and Customs Enforcement (Ice) of holding Hamid (not his real name) unlawfully as a dispute over his age leaves him in limbo.

Now Rohingya refugees are threatened by monsoons. Britain must help | Jo Stevens
One million people in temporary shelters along the Bangladesh-Myanmar border are in a truly desperate situationNone of us can be ignorant of the desperate situation facing the Rohingya people – it is one of the greatest humanitarian crises of recent times. I have been to the refugee camps on Bangladesh-Myanmar border, where almost 1 million Rohingya refugees are in temporary shelters. I met refugees who have fled unspeakable levels of violence and systematic abuse, including the murder of entire villages by the Myanmar military. This latest atrocity is the result of a sustained campaign of marginalisation and discrimination that started decades before the August 2017 genocide. I support a referral to the international criminal court. The UK government doesn’t.The Rohingya are Muslims who live in majority-Buddhist Myanmar. They are often described as "the world's most persecuted minority".  Related: 'I fear Myanmar, I don't want to go home': Rohingya in Bangladesh – in pictures Continue reading... [...]
