Pilots in Germany refused to deport asylum seekers from the country and grounded more than 200 flights in protest.
German media reported that 85 of the disrupted flights were on Lufthansa and its subsidiary, Eurowings.
Anna Shea, Amnesty International's Researcher on Refugee and Migrant Rights, said that government was being "wilfully blind" to the fact that violence was at a record high in Afghanistan. The majority of the canceled flights, around 140, took place at Frankfurt Airport, Germany's largest and most important hub. About 40 took place at Dusseldorf airport, where the controversial deportations are routinely accompanied by protesters on the tarmac.
According to German newspaper Die Welt - quoting the European statistics agency Eurostat - the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees decided more than 388,000 asylum cases in the first six months of this year.

As well as this, his Shield brothers, Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose, are scheduled to have a title match on the show as well. Roman Reigns and Samoa Joe got involved in the match to end the show, but things weren't quite done just yet.
As Germany stepped up deportations, the number of asylum seekers appealing their decisions has increased significantly.
This is almost double the amount of appeals made during the same period in 2016 - as it stands now, the courts side with about one in every four asylum seekers who appeal their status.
Those who voluntarily return are already offered between 800 and 1,200 euros per person, but in order to boost numbers, the government now offer a housing support grant of 3,000 euros per family.
