1m people displaced in NWFP: UN

  • GENEVA: The UN refugee agency says half a million people have fled fighting in the NWFP in the past few days, bringing the total displaced in recent months to one million. A spokesman for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, Ron Redmond, says the fighting has led to massive displacement in the area. He says up to 200,000 people have arrived in safe areas in the past few days and that another 300,000 are on the move or are about to flee. Redmond told reporters in Geneva on Friday that the numbers are in addition to the 555,000 already counted by the UN since August.
