Thousands of African asylum seekers and refugees are facing deportation from Israel, after parliament approved a bill allowing the government to force them out of the country.

 

 

Those who refuse to go will be imprisoned.

 

 

A detention centre which houses some of them will also be closed within months.

 

 

Campaigners say the measures ignore the rights of people seeking refuge from repressive governments.

 

 

Al Jazeera’s Harry Fawcett reports from Tel Aviv.
