A delegation from Uruguay will head to Lebanon Friday to select 120 Syrian refugees who can come to the South American country, the country's Human Rights Department said.Opinion polls indicate most Uruguayans favor accepting the refugees, though a majority dislike President Jose Mujica's offer to take other refugees: six prisoners to be released from the U.S. Guantanamo Bay Naval Base, including four Syrians.United Nations officials say there are more than 2 million Syrian refugees, many filling camps in Jordan, Turkey and Lebanon.
