Thirty Egyptians escaped from a refugee camp

A group of asylum seekers from Egypt escaped from refugee camp in Velke Prilepy near Prague. It has happened this Saturday night. Three of them were captured, the rest dissapeared.

All refugees are from Egypt and they have almost no chance to get asylum in Czech Republic. Czech Republic accepts asylant seekers only by rules of Genevian conventions: refugees escaping in case of a political or a religion persecution. Egyptians are trying to get to Czech Republic because of economic situation.

The future of Egyptians would be mostly simple: return back to Egypt, so the refugees has nothing to lose. Unpleasant conditions in refugee camp are not very kind for refugees. Barbed wire, armed guards and almost nothing to do in a camp make things worse. Refugees feel like in a prison, for example they have only a small asphalt ground in the open air.
