Israel's supreme court on Monday struck down a year-old law that meant African migrants could be held in detention for up three years without charge.

The law, that came into force in June last year, was meant to deter illegal immigration but was condemned by human rights campaigners as a harsh and illegal way of treating people, especially those fleeing persecution and seeking asylum. (Reuters)
