REFUGIADOS

Deslocados no mundo atingem recorde de quase 69 milhões

July 2, 2018 - Quase 69 milhões de pessoas em todo o mundo – o número mais elevado alguma vez registado – foram obrigadas a abandonar as suas casas devido à guerra e perseguição até ao final de 2017, segundo a ONU.

The U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees said the continued crises in places like South Sudan and Congo, as well as the exodus of Muslim Rohingya from Myanmar that started last year, raised the overall figure of forced displacements in 2017 to 68.5 million.

Of that total, 16.2 million were newly displaced last year — an average of more than 44,000 people per day. Most have been displaced for longer than that, some forced to flee multiple times.

For the fourth year running, Turkey was again the country with the largest number of refugees — mostly Syrians — at 3.5 million at the end of 2017.
