Two days before World Refugee Day, Egypt deports approximately 120 Eritrean refugees, raising to over 800 the total number of Eritrean asylum seekers deported from Egypt since 11 June.

A poignant reminder that no matter how many official ‘Days’ the UN or any other body can designate to a cause, the realpolitik agendas of local, regional and global powers will not be compromised.
