World Refugee Day: 65.6 million people displaced worldwide

The amount of people displaced by conflicts, violence, and persecution around the world has reached 65.6 million, marking a jump of 300,000 compared with last year, according to a report published a day ahead of World Refugee Day on June 20 by the UN refugee agency.
On average, one out of every 113 people worldwide is displaced. "This equates to one person becoming displaced every three seconds, less than the time it takes to read this sentence," UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) Filippo Grandi pointed out in a statement.
