Family ordered to leave country to 'face death'

  • The petition to stop the family from being deported can be found here

A family have been ordered to leave the country to face what they claim will mean almost certain death.

The Al-Aloosi family fled their home in Iraq in 2006 after a failed assassination attempt and death threats because of their religion.

Their asylum claim's been rejected, and the Home Office say they'll be deported unless they leave the country - but members of their adopted community in Liverpool are now fighting that ruling.

Rachel Townsend's been to meet them.
