More than 70 million displaced worldwide, says UNHCR

The number of people fleeing war, persecution and conflict exceeded 70 million globally last year the highest number in the UN refugee agency’s almost 70 years of operations. The almost 70.8 million people forcibly displaced is up 2.3 million on the previous year. This is also double the level recorded 20 years ago. The number averaged out to 37,000 new displacements every day.
