Iraqi refugees flood fragile region
A silent exodus of Iraqis spurred by 4 years of continuous violence is
straining neighbors ill-equipped to handle the huge influx.
The displaced in Iraq and Darfur
The United Nations says about 2.4 million Iraqis are refugees —
having left their country to flee persecution — and 1.9 million more
are “internally displaced,” having fled their homes but staying in the
country. In the Darfur region of Sudan, the total displaced is 2.2
million to 2.5 million, with the majority remaining in the country.
