Refugees in Sweden

Besitun Hadi Ahmed, an Iraqi Kurd, recently lost the ability to walk because of a spinal problem, and doctors say his only hope is medical treatment and physical therapy not available in Iraq. He recently lost his case for asylum in Sweden and could be deported at any time, making him fearful about going to therapy. Kim Murphy / Los Angeles Times
