Dr. Kamal Kadr examines 6-week-old Pais Rasul Hasan while her mother Khadija Abdullah watches in a refugee camp near the villages of Sharkhan and Ali Rash, Iraq, near the border with Iran, June 12, 2010. The doctors treated the refugees for chest and stomach infections and chronic health issues like hypertension. Residents of the two villages became refugees when shelling from Iran made staying in their homes too dangerous. Iranian soldiers reportedly set up outposts inside the borders of Iraqi Kurdistan, raising questions about Iraq's ability to secure its borders.
