Repatriation: An update

Through friends in the Kurdish community who have contact with Osman’s family in Iraq, we have been informed that the burial of Osman’s body was carried out on Friday 6th of August, attended by family and friends from the village in which he was born.

The body was first flown to Jordan, held overnight and transferred across the border into Iraq the next day, where it was returned to his family. The funeral ceremony was then conducted immediately afterwards.

His family are of course grieving the loss of a beloved son and brother, but are thankful that they could be reunited with the body in their time of sadness.
