Uganda says ‘considering’ deal to accept migrants from Israel

Kampala (AFP) – Following months of denial, Uganda said Friday it was considering a proposal from Israel to accept hundreds of Africans the country wishes to deport.

According to Uganda’s junior refugees minister, Musa Ecweru, Israel has requested that Uganda accept about 500 Eritrean and Sudanese migrants and “the government (is)… positively considering the request”.
