200 Sudanese refugees have been put on busses by the Be'er Sheba municipality who announced Wednesday that they could no longer take care of the refugees' needs and that it was the responsibility of the Israeli government. "The problem is that the government of Israel has not worked together with the municipality to deal with this crisis," a municipality spokesmen told the Jerusalem Post "so we've decided to take some of the refugees and leave them in the streets of Jerusalem." The busses carrying the refugees are expected to arrive at the Rose Garden next to the Knesset by 6 p.m. The gov't is set to discuss the policy on refugees on Thursday.
