DUBAI: Kuwait's deportation of eight Egyptian dissidents linked to the Muslim Brotherhood is unlawful and put them at "grave risk" of torture and prosecution, Human Rights Watch said yesterday. "The deportation of the men appears to violate Kuwait's obligations under international law," HRW said in a statement. The New York-based rights group called on Kuwait to end further deportations to Egypt of anyone at risk of mistreatment. "Kuwaiti authorities have put at grave risk eight men who fled mass oppression in Egypt and thought they had found refuge in Kuwait," said HRW's Middle East and North Africa Director Sarah Leah Whitson. - AFP
