Budapest, Hungary | AFP | Monday 7/18/2016 - 12:26 GMT |

Eight people were hospitalised after a mass brawl involving some 200 migrants broke out at a migrant camp in Hungary Sunday, a senior government official said.

A group of around 20 asylum-seekers -- including Algerians, Syrians, Pakistanis, and Mongolians -- triggered the violence when they exchanged blows before attacking each other using furniture, said Gyorgy Bakondi, chief advisor to Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban.

General Situation during June 2016

The Desert Locust situation remained extremely serious in Yemen during June. New swarms formed in the interior, some of which moved into the highlands and may continue to the Red Sea coast while others could still move to the summer breeding areas along the Indo-Pakistan border. Crop damage was reported in Yemen. More swarms are expected to form during July and another generation of breeding could commence in August. Survey and control operations remain limited due to insecurity.

Strategic Assessment

The global terrorist threat continued to evolve rapidly in 2015, becoming increasingly decentralized and diffuse.
