84 million people displaced worldwide: UN

  • On Thursday, UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) said that around 84 million people had to abandon their homes and got displaced in the first half of the year.

  • Majority of the displaced population belongs to Africa.

  • "The international community is failing to prevent violence, persecution, and human rights violations, which continue to drive people from their homes," UNHCR head Filippo Grandi said.

  • "In addition, the effects of climate change are exacerbating existing vulnerabilities in many areas hosting the forcibly displaced," he also said.
