“Most Iraqi refugees cannot return to Iraq in view of the severe trauma they experienced there, the uncertainty linked to the coming Iraqi elections, the security issues and the lack of basic services,” Jolie says in a statement released by the UNHCR. “They will, therefore, be in need of continued support from the international community.”
