The town of Liberec will accept about 20 of the 153 Iraqi Christian refugees, who will start arriving in the Czech Republic this weekend, Liberec Deputy Mayor Ivan Langr said on Wednesday. The Liberec town hall will prepare two municipal flats for the refugees and aid would be provided by local Christian groups and charities. Along with the Interior Ministry and the Czech intelligence services, the Generation 21 Foundation organises the transport of 37 Christian families, most of who have been granted the international refugee status. The first 27 Iraqi Christians will arrive in Prague on January 24 and move to Jihlava, south Moravia. The rest of them are to come in February and March.
