A UNHCR official said that there are 1,100 Iranian Kurds just outside the Jordanian border.
They wait in a separate camp at a place called no man's land, a few miles of space between the Jordanian and Iraqi borders. No one except a few aid groups is allowed to visit that camp, begun as a temporary staging ground for refugees.
Jordan said some of them were members of the Iranian opposition group Mujahideen Khalq, or People's Mujahideen, and were a security risk. Bak, the Jordanian official, said all Khalq members have returned to Iraq, but the remaining Iranians still aren't allowed into Jordan. UNHCR, which also oversees the Iranians, has repeatedly called for Jordan to allow the group into the country.
These refugees feel that the world has forgotten them.
