A student used a Facebook Live Stream to prevent the deportation of an Afghan asylum seeker on board an Istanbul-bound plane at Gothenburg airport in Sweden.

Elin Ersson refused to sit down until the man was taken off the plane along with her as the other passengers applauded, report CNN and the BBC.

Reactions have been largely supportive of her action, although some people are accusing her of grandstanding.

The video has since been widely shared and received almost two million views.

Ersson explains to the other passengers and the viewers of Facebook that she does not agree with Swedish deportation policy, which classifies Afghanistan as a safe country and sends rejected asylum seekers back.
