Germany deported a group of Egyptians to Cairo over violations of residency requirements, including those whose asylum requests were rejected, Egyptian airport officials said Thursday.Germany's Interior Ministry however only acknowledged nine deportations.The officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the flight full of deportees was a first for Germany, although they noted that Italy had also organized a similar deportation in the past.Germany's new Cabinet, which will be sworn in next week, has vowed to continue pushing for voluntary returns of migrants and enforce deportations of rejected asylum seekers, who until now have remained in Germany in legal limbo.
