Child refugees leave Tunisia camp

Nearly three dozen unaccompanied children left Tunisia's Shousha refugee camp last week-end for resettlement in Norway, the UNHCR announced on Tuesday (January 17th). The children were among 90 who arrived in 2011 at the camp, located near the Ras Jedir border crossing. Some were already without parents when they first arrived from Libya. Most are from Somalia, Sudan, Ethiopia, or Eritrea.

More than 3,000 refugees have been submitted for resettlement from the Shousha camp. Resettlement referrals have been accepted by Australia, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, Ireland, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Sweden and the United States.
