    Background: Officials at the main transit camp for South Vietnamese refugees flying to the United States are becoming increasingly concerned that facilities there will be severally strained.

    On Wednesday (7 May) alone, some 20,000 more refugees were brought in by U.S. Navy ships. About 80,000 are expected this week, and the over-all total is expected to be about 150,000.

    Although the bulk of them will be going to the United States, some of them will be resettled in other countries, including Austria and the United Kingdom.

    The Geneva-based Intergovernmental Committee for European Migrations, helping out in Guam, has appealed to other nations to take the evacuees. Refugees have expressed interest in going to Australia, france, Switzerland, Japan, Korea, Thailand, Iran, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Singapore.

    However, for political reasons, some of these countries will probably not take them.
