Iraqi Refugees Seek Safer Haven – Back In Iraq

150,000 refugee Iraqi’s have returned to Iraq from seemingly more unstable countries, according to AKNews.

Iraqi immigration minister Dindar Dosk said that these Iraqis, who escaped from Iraq after the Iraq War began, have now returned since the outbreak of protests in the Arab world over the past year, in particular from Yemen, Libya, Egypt and Syria.

“We have registered 150,000 Iraqi families who have returned to Iraq and still there are others who want to come back,” said  Doski.

Millions of Iraqis fled to Syria and Jordan during and after the Iraq War with smaller numbers getting further, even to Europe and the USA.
