Seven refugees were to be deported

Activists block Migration Board vehicle

A group of activists blocked a vehicle carrying refugees who were to be deported as it left the Migration Board offices near Gothenburg, reports news agency TT.

Seven people who were to be deported to Afhganistan and Iraq were inside the vehicle that was headed to Landvetter airport outside of Gothenburg.

Police say 25 to 30 people blocked the vehicle, by among other tactics, parking a car in the middle of the road so the transport could not pass.
