Israel will release 207 African migrants from prison following a supreme court ruling after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu controversially reversed a deal with the U.N. refugee agency on the detainees' fate.There are around 42,000 African migrants in Israel. Israel's supreme court on April 10 gave the government until Sunday to finalize a deal it said it was working on to deport some of the migrants to another country.The U.N. refugee agency has strongly criticized the deportation plan and urged Israel to return to the deal, which would have allowed thousands of migrants to remain in the country in return for an equal number being relocated to Western nations.
