A Palestinian who fled the violence in Iraq two years ago said on Tuesday that he was leaving Damascus with 38 compatriots to Sweden for resettlement. The man spoke to reporters shortly before the plane carrying all 39 Palestinians left for Hungary en route to Sweden. The 39 were among nearly 160 Palestinians Sweden has agreed to take from among hundreds of Palestinians who have been stranded in makeshift desert camps on Iraq's border with Syria. Earlier this month, 25 Palestinians left for Iceland and 117 went to Chile in January.
