Iraqi Refugees in Syria

From War News Radio | 08:59

From "Gridlock" (6/25/10): War News Radio reports on the lives of Iraqi refugees in exile, particularly those who fled to Syria after 2003.

Default-piece-image-0 Since the beginning of the Iraq War in 2003, over 2 million Iraqis have fled to neighboring countries , with over half seeking asylum in Syria. The UN estimates that nearly 800 thousand of that number are still residing there today, although many are not officially registered as refugees. As the Syrian government is not willing to accommodate them permanently, the situation of these Iraqis is becoming increasingly desperate. This piece was featured in "Gridlock" on 06/25/2010.
