BERLIN (AP) — Germany and the Netherlands have suspended deportations of migrants to Afghanistan due to the tense security situation in the country. A spokesperson said German Interior Minister Horst Seehofer ordered the suspension “for the time being.” Ministry spokesperson Steve Alter said Wednesday that almost 30,000 Afghans in Germany are currently required to leave the country. In the Netherlands, Justice State Secretary Ankie Broekers-Knol wrote to parliament that current changes in Afghanistan were so unpredictable “that a decision was taken to impose a departure moratorium.”
