Sudan breached international agreements on the protection of refugees by deporting a group of Ethiopians back to their home country, the UN refugee agency said Thursday. Sudan turned at least 15 refugees over to Ethiopian authorities last month, despite the fact that they could face persecution in Ethiopia, the office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees said. The move - which follows a similar incident in August - breaches the 1951 Refugee Convention and other treaties signed by Sudan, UNHCR said.
