First group of Christian refugees from Iraq arrives in Prague

The first group of ten Christian refugees from Iraq arrived at Prague's Václav Havel Airport on Sunday, the spokesman for the foundation Generace 21, which is financing most of the relocation project, told the Czech News Agency. The refugees will now be taken to a recreational centre Okrouhlík near Jihlava, where they will spend the next few months. Another group of about two dozen people are expected to arrive within the next few weeks.
