Iraqi refugees leave Syria for home

As unrest grips Syria, many Iraqis who fled from violence in Iraq are heading home.


    For more than a million Iraqis who escaped the violence in their country after the 2003 US invasion, Syria was a safe destination.

    But now, as the security situation in that country worsens, many are going back to Iraq to face an uncertain future.

    Al Jazeera's Omar Al Saleh has the story of one such family.
