Shaheed Elhafed — Head of the Robert-Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights Kerry Kennedy, visiting Wednesday the Sahrawi refugee camps with a delegation made up of international human rights defense organizations, qualified as "remarkable" the organization of everyday life in these camps.

"I visited several refugee camps around the world but the organization of everyday life in the Sahrawi camps is remarkable," Kennedy said after a meeting with representatives of the Saharawi civil society.
