Togh Sarai displacement

In the second week of June almost all IDPs residing in Togh Sarai Camp in Hangu District left the camp after threats from some non-state armed actors and an attack resulting in injuries to four people. The camp houses some 7,000 people displaced from Kurram and Orakzai agencies. Consequently, the Government increased the security in and around the camp, resulting in some 3,077 people returning to the camp. The remaining approximately 3,923 people are still spread to surrounding areas.
