Tribal sheikhs to hand over suspects

Tribal sheikhs/leaders in northern parts of Iraq have agreed to hand over suspects to the Iraqi security forces. [Arabic link]

This rare development contradicts tribal traditions which oblige the tribe to protected refugees no matter what crime they have committed. Having said that, I am not sure whether this agreement is to hand over suspected refugees, or to capture and hand over suspects, or both!

It would seem that it really doesn't matter which one, Ahmad. Just the fact that they have decided to co=operate with the Authorities is a positive step, ESPECIALLY in light of your comment.
We can not lose hope, for without hope, there is only dispair.
