600 Pinoys stranded in US bases in Iraq

About 600 overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) are stranded inside United States base camps in conflict-torn Iraq because the Philippine government refused to lift the partial deployment ban it imposed there, a migration expert said on Friday.

Emmanuel Geslani, a migration and recruitment expert, said in a statement that the Philippine government’s refusal to lift the partial ban caused Filipino workers in Iraq to be stranded in the US bases.
