Relief Workers Concerned for Palestinians in Iraq

  • VOA News

The United Nations refugee agency says it is concerned about death threats against Palestinians living in Iraq. On Friday, The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees said the estimated 34-thousand Palestinian families in Iraq feel especially vulnerable because many Iraqi's resent their favorable treatment under the rule of Saddam Hussein.

The UN says it recently sent a letter to Iraqi president Jalal Talibani asking for increased protection for Palestinians. A group of 88 Palestinians trying to flee Iraq remains blocked in a no-man land after Jordanian authorities stopped them from crossing the border. The UN says it has given the group enough food and other provisions to last four or five days.
