THE Archbishop of Canterbury has issued a statement expressing his concern over the situation at Camp Ashraf, the refugee camp in Iraq that houses 3400 Iranian exiles, writes Ed Beavan.
Dr Williams wrote last month that the humanitarian issues around the camp continue “to give the gravest concern to many throughout the world”. He said that “all people of faith will condemn the violence” to which people at the camp had been subjected, and called for protection for its residents.
“It is important that governments collaborate to secure the safety of Ashraf residents who are still living in a legal no-man’s-land, uncertain who will take responsibility for their security.”
