Video: Iraqi refugees back in UK

Iraqis, refused asylum in London, find themselves stopped at Baghdad airport.

    A row has broken out between Iraq and the UK, after London tried to deport a number of Iraqi asylum seekers, which Baghdad then refused.

    At least 39 refugees were on the aircraft, but only 10 were allowed off. The remainder are now back in a British detention centre.

    It was the first time the UK government had attempted to send people back to central Iraq, an area the United Nations considers too dangerous for repatriations.
