 2,700 people have fled to Uganda over the past two days, 1,386 on Monday and 1,314 on Sunday.

 Oraba continues to be the main border crossing point, and is now receiving nearly twice as many new arrivals on a daily basis than Elegu. This reflects the fact that most people arriving in Uganda in recent days are fleeing from Central Equatoria.

 The number of people crossing in to Uganda at border points is steadily declining in comparison with previous weeks. Yesterday, 400 refugees were reported in Elegu Collection Point (Adjumani), while 362 refugees crossed in Oraba (Arua axis), 60 in Lamwo and 11 in Moyo. 941 refugees were received at Kiryandongo Reception Centre though there is a possibility that some refugees at Kiryandongo may have come from other temporary reception facilities in Uganda with their own transport.
