World Refugee Day

In case you are not aware today 20 June is World Refugee Day; and in that vein here's a couple of links:

:: A Day in the life of a 12-year-old in a Darfur camp

:: On where the refugees are:
While conflicts in Africa continue to displace hundreds of thousands of people, this year the U.N. refugee agency, UNHCR, is highlighting the fact that refugee numbers have increased from 10 million to nearly 12 million due to the persistence of refugee crises in Iraq and Afghanistan.

And here's a link to coverage of World Refugee Day, and the UN Refugee Agency website.
