Turkish Prime Minister Turgut Ozal appealed to other countries to accept half of the 50,000 Iraqi Kurds who fled to Turkey or to give financial aid to help settle them in Turkey. Ozal spoke as he toured a temporary refugee camp in southeastern Turkey, one of several established to handle refugees who have fled Iraq. Many of the refugees have accused Iraq of using poison gas against them. Meanwhile, following an Iraqi government amnesty, more than 1,000 Kurds returned from Iran to northeastern Iraq, where they received food and shelter at a makeshift relief center.
