The Netherlands is still locking child asylum seekers up in detention centers, according to research by UNICEF. Last year the Netherlands held 210 children in detention centers, some of them for up to 82 days. 900 children who applied for asylum in the Netherlands were sent back to their country of origin or another European Union country last year, RTL Nieuws reports.
The situation in Afghanistan is still very dangerous, and people sent back to the country run the risk of being kidnapped, tortured and killed, according to 10 aid organizations. They call on the Dutch government to stop deporting asylum seekers back to the country, RTL Nieuws reports.
