Denmark is preparing to withdraw its troops from Iraq where they've been serving under British command in Basra.
In preparation for their departure, the Danes have secretly extracted 200-Iraqis who had been working for them, mainly as translators. All will be offered asylum in Denmark.
"It's the right thing to do," said Captain Joergen Christian Nyholm, who served in Iraq. "My personal opinion is that they are at a pretty high risk."
