A Safer Place

Medecins sans Frontieres (Doctors Without Borders) is pulling out of Iraq, just as they did a few months ago from Afghanistan.
Underlining a rapid deterioration in security in Iraq, one of the few remaining international aid groups said it was quitting the country because of "extreme risk" to aid workers.

"It has become impossible ... to guarantee an acceptable level of security for our staff, be they foreign or Iraqi," Medecins sans Frontieres general director Gorik Ooms said in Belgium.
