Migrants returned to Iraqi camps from Belarus


Three specially chartered planes have now returned 1,000 migrants from Belarus to Iraq.

The majority of those returned were Iraqi and Syrian Kurds and Yazidis, groups displaced by fighting in the region over the past two decades.

One of these families was sent back to the same camp where she had lived for seven years, before attempting to reach Europe.
