U.N.: Conflicts Displace Record 100 Million People Around the Globe 

HeadlineMay 24, 2022

The United Nations says the number of people displaced by war, conflict and human rights abuses has topped 100 million for the first time. U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees Filippo Grandi announced the grim milestone as he met with Rohingya refugees who’ve fled violence and government persecution in Burma.

Filippo Grandi: “Much as we’re all focusing on Ukraine as a catastrophic emergency, we must not forget that there’s other critical situations in the world that need attention and resources.”
