Les forces de police ont investi mercredi matin un lycée en travaux dans le nord-est de Paris pour évacuer les migrants qui l'occupent depuis près de deux semaines, une opération marquée par des heurts.
Le lycée avait été investi dans la nuit du 21 au 22 avril par 150 migrants, notamment afghans, yéménites, soudanais, érythréens et somaliens, venant d'un campement sauvage où vivaient plus de 1.600 personnes sous une ligne de métro aérien.
Khartoum, 3 May 2016. The United Nations Secretary-General is holding the first-ever World Humanitarian Summit on 23-24 May in Istanbul, Turkey. The Summit will bring the global community together to reaffirm their solidarity with people affected by crises and their collective commitment to humanity.
The month saw fighting escalate again in Syria and Afghanistan, and erupt in Nagorno-Karabakh between Armenian-backed separatists and Azerbaijani forces. In Bangladesh, election violence and killings by extremist groups showed how new heights of government-opposition rivalry and state repression have benefitted violent political party wings and extremist groups alike. Political tensions intensified in Iraq and Macedonia, and security forces severely supressed opposition protests in the Republic of Congo and Gambia.

There are more than 20 million refugees worldwide—and half of them are children. Moreover, according to the UN High Commission for refugees, 86 percent of these refuges are in “countries considered economically less developed.” But international attention has focused disproportionately on the plight of those from the historical Levant, who continue to turn up in various wealthy European countries that have the power to shape international news and perceptions.
Khartoum, 28 April 2016
As I conclude my second visit as Independent Expert on the situation of human rights in the Sudan, I would like to first thank all of you for attending this press briefing. I would also like to express my appreciation to the Government of Sudan for its invitation and cooperation with the mandate I represent, the United Nations Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator in Khartoum, and UNAMID for their kind support to facilitate my visit from 14 to 28 April 2015.
Khartoum - 26 April 2016 : With an important new allocation, the goal to end malaria in Sudan is in reach. Over the next two years, Sudan will receive an additional 30 million USD from the Global Fund to support malaria interventions. The Grant Approval Committee of the Global Fund met in Geneva this week to review the proposal submitted by UNDP to extend the grant end date to December 2017 and provided positive recommendation. With this additional support the total malaria grant will stands to 116 million USD for 2015-2017.
The influx of South Sudanese into Sudan that began in late January 2016 amid ongoing conflict and deteriorating food insecurity continues with some 54,000 arrivals into East and South Darfur and West Kordofan states. Of these new arrivals, 41,774 are residing in East Darfur.
Since 2007, Generations For Peace has trained 8,920 volunteers from 50 countries, and with our support, volunteer-led programmes have reached 229,020 children, youth, and adults in communities facing different forms of violence. Our cascading model, in which volunteers we have trained directly (1st generation) go on to train other 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th and even up to 6th generation volunteers in their communities, increases our reach and reinforces the sustainability of our efforts.
The number of forcibly displaced people (refugees and internally displaced people) has continued to rise alarmingly in 2015 and 2016, calling for increased humanitarian assistance worldwide.
