UNHCR Chief Guterres strongly condemns deadly attack on Camp Liberty in Iraq 9 February 2013 - The High Commissioner for Refugees, Ant�nio Guterres expresses his shock about this morning's mortar attack on Camp Liberty in Iraq that reportedly killed six and wounded dozens. "I strongly condemn this attack," Mr. Guterres said, noting that the residents of Camp Liberty are asylum seekers undergoing the refugee status determination process and thus entitled to international protection. "This is a despicable act of violence." "I call on the Iraqi Government to do everything it can to guarantee security to the residents," he said. "The perpetrators must be found and brought to justice without delay," he said. The High Commissioner also calls on all countries to help find urgent solutions for the Camp Liberty residents. Mr. Guterres expresses his deep condolences to the families of the victims.
