"The High Court in Australia ruled Wednesday that the country cannot send asylum seekers to Malaysia. The prime ministers of both countries had announced the agreement in May, saying it was aimed at reducing human smuggling and illegal migration to Australia. Under the deal struck at the time, the next 800 asylum seekers who arrived in Australia illegally would be transferred to Malaysia for refugee status determination." (08/31/11)
