Iraqi refugees face rejection

European countries that determine Iraqis' asylum applications are deporting hundreds every month.

    At the height of the civil war in Iraq, Ali Jassim Mohommad, a photographer, managed to flee with his family to Sweden.

    His is a story of just one of the million plus people who have left Iraq since 2003.

    The United Nations High Commission for Refugees believes that Iraq is still unstable. But those who reach Europe seeking asylum, are increasingly at risk of being sent back.
