A row has broken out between Iraq and the United Kingdom after London tried to deport a number of Iraqi asylum seekers, which Baghdad then refused.

At least 39 refugees were on the aircraft, but only 10 were allowed off - the rest are now back in a British detention centre.

It was the first time the UK had sent people back to central Iraq.
