In this photo taken Jan. 23, 2013, Syrian asylum-seeker Wissam Attiki waits for a bus outside an immigration office in Marsta, Sweden. Along with Germany, which is nine times larger, Sweden stands out in Europe for its generous welcome to refugees fleeing a conflict that has killed tens of thousands and uprooted many more. European Union statistics show those two countries have received about two-thirds of the Syrians seeking shelter in the 27-nation bloc. (AP Photo/Karl Ritter)
