Record 68.5 million displaced in 2017: UN refugee agency
GENEVA (AP) － The U.N. refugee agency reported on June 19 that nearly 69 million people who have fled war, violence and persecution were forcibly displaced last year, a record for the fifth straight year.
The Office of the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) said the continued crises in places like South Sudan and the Democratic Republic of the 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.
For the fourth year running, Turkey was the country with the largest number of refugees － mostly Syrians － at 3.5 million at the end of 2017. The UNHCR said 85 percent of refugees are in developing countries, many of them "desperately poor."
The report also revealed that children below 18 years of age made up 52 percent of the refugee population.
