Red Cross on Sunday asked that a safe haven be found
for the nearly 200 Iranian-Kurdish refugees stranded
in a desert camp between Jordan and Iraq.
About 190 refugees, including 29 families, fled the
al-Tash refugee camp in the Ramadi area of western
Iraq in January 2005 due to insurgent threats and
settled in the remote border area.
The International Committee of the Red Cross said a
durable, safe solution should be found so the
refugees can leave the desert camp.
