People seeking asylum in the United Kingdom will be flown over 7 200 km to Rwanda as part of a range of measures to crack down on unauthorised migrants to be announced by Prime Minister Boris Johnson, including putting the navy in charge of Channel operations from Friday. The Guardian reports that the deal with Rwanda, which will reportedly cost an initial £120m, follows three years of promises by Home Secretary Priti Patel to outsource asylum processing to third countries and failures to strike deals with Albania and Ghana. Migrants will reportedly have their asylum claims processed in the east African country and be encouraged to settle there but The Times said the move will apply only male migrants.
