Iraqi children 'forced to live among corpses and bombs' after camp closures

Iraqi children are living in squalor among "corpses, unexploded bombs and rubble", the Save the Children charity said on Friday after the closure of several camps for the interally displaced.

The IDP camp closures come as part of a plan to relocate around a quarter of a million people back to their areas of origin.

But many of those areas are ill-prepared to resettle families who fled the extremist Islamic State group, Save the Children said on Friday.

More than 300 families were recently forced out of the Yahyawa camp in Kirkuk and have since returned to Mosul, Eiyadiah and Tal Afar in the Nineveh governerate in northern Iraq.
