Ghana has defended its policy of sending asylum seekers back to Burkina Faso, after the UN refugee agency urged it to stop deportations.

Ghana’s national security ministry said suspected terrorists and illegal migrants were being repatriated in accordance with international protocols.

And it claimed refugees were only being sent back if they were willing to go.

Burkina Faso is in the grip of an Islamist insurgency and Ghana is concerned that the militants could take advantage of the flow of refugees to infiltrate its territory.
