The United Nations has expressed grave disappointment over Indian decision to deport seven Rohingya Muslims to Myanmar despite last-minute appeals that doing so will put them at risk.

The UN special rapporteur on racism, Tendayi Achiume said today India risked breaching its international legal obligations by returning the men to possible harm.

She said given the ethnic identity of the men, this is a flagrant denial of their right to protection.
