Refugee killed on holiday to his homeland
A 36-year-old Kurd who was living in Örebro, Sweden, died during a shootout between Kurdish and Iranian forces when he went back on holiday to the country he had fled.

According to the local newspaper Nerikes Allehanda, the incident occurred when the man, who had been granted refugee status by the the Swedish Immigration Board, went back to Iran to visit friends and relatives.

He first went to Iraqi Kurdistan and then tried to enter illegally into Iran, where his family resides. He traveled together with Kurdish peshmerga soldiers who were shot at while entering the country.

After several years of peace, clashes between the peshmerga KDPI (Kurdistan Democratic Party of Iran) and the Iranian Revolutionary Guard have resumed in the area.

According to the newspaper, the refugee leaves behind a wife and two children in Örebro.
