Global refugees and displaced to hit record, UN says

The number of forcibly displaced people worldwide will “far surpass” a record 60 million this year, the UN says.

The report by the United Nations refugee agency (UNHCR) said “one in every 122 humans is today someone who has been forced to flee their homes”.

The figure includes 20.2 million refugees, the highest total since 1992, the UNHCR added.

The numbers were mainly driven by the Syrian war, conflict in Ukraine and other protracted conflicts, it said.
