A Malaysian court on Wednesday halted the deportation of the remaining 114 people who were on the original list of 1,200 immigrants to be deported to Myanmar, Amnesty International said on Wednesday.

The Kuala Lumpur High Court extended the stay on deportation a day after the Malaysian government sent more than 1,086 Myanmar nationals back to their homeland on Tuesday in defiance of an earlier court order.EFE-EPA
