One in five Iraqis displaced or refugees: agency | International | Reuters

GENEVA (Reuters) – Nearly one in five of Iraq’s population before the U.S.-led invasion five years ago are living as internally displaced people or refugees in other countries, a global relief agency said on Tuesday.

The International Organization for Migration (IOM) said the 2.7 million displaced were putting huge pressure on Iraq’s shaky infrastructure and outside funding was lacking.

The situation of the 2.4 million refugees, who are mainly in Syria and Jordan, was also deteriorating, said the IOM, an independent body that cooperates with the United Nations and its humanitarian agencies.

”There is very little light at the end of the tunnel in Iraq’s humanitarian crisis,” IOM spokeswoman Jemini Pandya told a news briefing. ”Conditions for the displaced, and refugees, have been getting steadily worse.”
