The Netherlands: Refugees moving on

Here is an interesting little bit from Dutch News: 

Some 10% of the asylum seekers granted refugee status in the Netherlands between 1998 and 2008 have moved on to a third country, according to new figures from the national statistics office CBS.

The research covers 38,000 people. Of them, some 4,000 have left the country.

Britain was the most popular destination, attracting one in three refugees. Six out of 10 Somalian refugees went to Britain, as did half of the Afghans.

Yugoslavian and Iraqi refugees are most likely to return home, the CBS figures show.
