Refugees

■ An influx of Central African refugees has been taking place since 4 April in Mogoro, about 45km from Gbadolite in Nord-Ubangi Province. UNHCR and its partner the National Refugee Commission (CNR) preregistered 3,829 people (1,096 households). However it was yet to be established how many among them fled the recent violence in Basse Kotto, Central African Republic. In addition, 1,467 households had already been biometrically registered in DRC in 2017, as they had likely returned to the Central African Republic, then fled to DRC again.
