A group of 56 Sri Lankan asylum-seekers have challenged their deportation from Australia.

Australia has sent more than 500 Sri Lankans back to Colombo involuntarily since August, deeming them as economic migrants.

But a group of 56 who had been scheduled for deportation applied for an injunction against their removal in High Court late yesterday.

However no injunction was granted but the asylum-seekers won an undertaking from the government that they will not be removed before their case returns to court on Thursday.
