UN reports record number of displaced persons worldwide

Geneva, Oct 25 (Prensa Latina) The United Nations (UN) today reported a record number of people displaced from their homes in the world, mainly due to regional conflicts and geopolitical issues.

The number of people on the planet forcibly displaced from their homes exceeded 114 million, a record number, the UN said Wednesday.

A report specified that the number of people displaced by war, persecution, violence and human rights violations probably exceeded 114 million at the end of September, the statement from the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) stressed.

The main causes of forced displacement of people in the first half of 2023 were conflicts in Ukraine, Sudan, Myanmar and the Democratic Republic of Congo, the humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan and a combination of drought, floods and insecurity in Somalia, the agency said.
