Children - descendants of Iranian Kurds who came to Iraq as refugees and settled in the Al-Anbar capital Ramadi - play on a rough soccer field at a refugee camp on the eastern approaches to Suleymaniah, Iraqi Kurdistan on Monday September 19, 2006. The refugees who came to Iraq fleeing persecution in Iran were forced by Saddam Hussein to migrate to Al-Anbar. Following the explosion of violence in western Iraq after the invasion, they were once again forced to flee and have been moving back to Iraqi Kurdistan since 2004.
