Asylum seekers sent to Sweden in previous weeks

The Interior Ministry reported Tuesday that dozens of Eritrean asylum seekers were flown to Sweden in the last few weeks. This is the first time the asylum seekers went to Sweden.

 

Minister Gideon Sa'ar arranged the transfer with the Swedish government and the UN's refugee agency. Each asylum seeker received a $3,500 grant. (Omri Efraim)
