Sweden Begins Resettling Refugees

Published torsdag 7 oktober 2004 kl 13.19

Sweden has begun resettling 384 Iranian kurds who’ve been stranded in the desert on the Jordan-Iraq border for the past 18 months.

Sweden has received clearance to move the refugees into a camp just inside Jordan, for a maximum period of two weeks before their departure for a new life in Sweden.

Jordan has insisted it cannot itself give asylum to the refugees, who fled Iraq in April last year in the face of the collapse of Saddam Hussein’s regime which had given them shelter.

Embassy secretary Ann Sofie Nilsson said some of the refugees may have to be moved back to no-man’s land after their fortnight before they can be flown over to Sweden.
