Kurdish-Iranian asylum seeker sets himself on fire in Erbil

ERBIL, Kurdistan Region — A Kurdish asylum seeker from Iran set himself on fire on Tuesday in front of the Erbil offices of the United Nations refugee organization (UNHCR) in protest over his economic and living conditions.

Behzad Mahmoudi, 25, has been living in the Kurdistan Region for four years. On Tuesday afternoon, in front of several reporters, he poured petrol on his body and set himself on fire. He was taken to hospital in critical condition with burns to 91 percent of his body.

Speaking to Rudaw from the hospital, Mahmoudi said he needs help from the UNHCR because he is living in dire circumstances and unable to find work.

“They have to help me. We have no work, no money and our only hope is the UN and the UN doesn’t answer us. It is our right,” he said.

He said that he had asked the UNHCR for help before staging his protest, but was dismissed.

In a statement to Rudaw, a spokesperson for the UN mission in Iraq (UNAMI) said they are “shocked and saddened with the whole incident and on behalf of the United Nations family in Iraq, wish the young man a speedy recovery.”
