Jordan refuses to accept Palestinian, Iranian refugees
Hundreds of Iranian Kurds have fled to the Jordanian border from a refugee camp in central Iraq because they fear their lives are in danger, a spokesman for the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees said on Sunday, according to Reuters.
Spokesman Peter Kessler said Jordan was refusing to grant asylum to the Iranians and to smaller numbers of Palestinians, more than 1,000 in total, who were now stranded in a no-man's land on the Iraq-Jordan border. (Albawaba.com)
