war has so far produced only a handful of refugees, but it is too early
to rule out a humanitarian crisis like the one sparked by the 1991 Gulf
war, the head of the United Nations refugee agency said on Tuesday.
U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees Ruud Lubbers said there were more
Iraqi refugees in the industrialised world than from any other single
country, having already fled the rule of Saddam Hussein before the
U.S.-led war began. The British forces are helping the local people
