UN says planning for two lakh Ethiopian refugees in Sudan


Geneva, November 20

UN agencies are planning for the possible arrival of 2,00,000 refugees in Sudan fleeing violence in Ethiopia over a six-month period, a UN refugee agency official said on Friday.

“Together with all the agencies we have built a response plan for about 20,000 people and currently we are at about 31,000 so it has already surpassed that figure,” Axel Bisschop told a Geneva briefing.

“The new planning figure is around 2,00,000,” Bisschop added. Reuters
