In early November, 34 Syrian and Iraqi refugees boarded buses heading for Germany from Lithuania, the country where they had been resettled.Only a tiny number of refugees from war in the Middle East have been sent to Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia, among the European Union's poorest countries.Seventy-two out of the 90 Syrians and Iraqis resettled to Lithuania from Greece or Turkey, and granted refugee status under its EU quota, have since left, as per official figures.Hajj Ali, who is in touch with some of the refugees who took the buses from Lithuania to Germany, says things are better there.The European Union is struggling to implement its 2015 agreement to share 160,000 refugees across 28 member states.Not one of its allocated 77 refugees is missing, its Interior Ministry said.
