    Doctors flee Iraq

    According to this article, from the Peninsula, over 1000 doctors have fled from Iraq in the past year alone, due to the instability there:

    The syndicate estimates 1,500 medical professionals- doctors, nurses, dentists and pharmacists-have fled in the past year alone, although precise numbers are difficult to obtain. Almost as many left in 2003 and in 2004, Alusi said. Many have fled to Jordan and other Arab countries, while others have moved to Europe. Scores have also headed to the northern Kurdish region of Iraq, where there is much less violence and where pay and conditions are far better than in the centre of the country.
