Originally published


Iraq: The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant and its allies have overrun non-Kurdish controlled areas Ninevah and significant areas of neighbouring Salah al Din and Kirkuk governorates, as well as part of northern Diyala. Access is severely limited, and hundreds of thousands of displaced persons are in need of humanitarian assistance.

Paraguay: An estimated 159,200 people affected by flooding, as heavy rainfall has caused rivers to overflow from Alto Paraguay department in the north to Ñeembucú in the south. Three departments and five districts have declared a state of emergency.

South Sudan: 300 more cases of cholera in Juba bring the total to 1,700. In Western Bahr el Ghazal, areas of Buseri were taken by armed men just days after the Government and SPLM-in-Opposition signed a peace deal.
