Authorities in Iraq's Karbala province have voted for the return of all displaced Iraqis whose home areas have been recaptured from ISIS, they announced Friday.Millions of people have fled their homes to escape violence in Iraq, but many areas that have been retaken from ISIS militants are still littered with bombs and heavily damaged, making returning difficult.The United Nations refugee agency has warned against premature or forcible returns of displaced Iraqis.Displaced Iraqis may not have a home to return to even if they wanted to due to destruction caused by the fighting to force the extremists out.
