Sudan announced on Monday that it would take in Palestinian refugees from Iraq who were stranded two months ago at the Syrian border, Israel Radio reported. A senior official in the Khartoum Foreign Ministry said that President Omar al-Bashir was responding to the request by Hamas and Fatah to host several hundred refugees, and had already begun preparing for their absorption. The United Nations High Commission for Refugees says that over 1,500 Palestinian refugees who fled their homes in Iraq are currently living in harsh conditions in refugee camps along the Syrian border.
