U.K. cancels first flight deporting migrants to Rwanda after European court steps in.

Britain has cancelled its first deportation flight to Rwanda after a last-minute intervention by the European Court of Human Rights.

The court decided there was “a real risk of irreversible harm” to the asylum seekers involved.

The flight had been scheduled to leave Tuesday but lawyers for the asylum seekers launched appeals seeking to block the deportation.

The decision to scrap the Tuesday flight caps three days of frantic court challenges as immigration rights advocates and labour unions sought to stop the deportations.
