Iraqis all refuse to give up the camp. Somali’s take time to decide.
Today the parliament voted against a proposal to review all cases
of Iraqi asylants. Minisiter Leers tried to convince a delegation of
the campers to return voluntarily and to give up the camp. His offer
to give shelter for three weeks was rejected and the Iraqis will

with his Iraqi counterpart in three weeks.
The Somali group is talking all day about the situation and may reach
a decision in the night.
