“First the pandemic, and then the hurricane ... we have no money for our children,” he said on the journey north. Back-to-back hurricanes Eta and Iota internally displaced more than half a million people in Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua, according to International Organization for Migration data. On the election campaign trail, Biden promised a $4 billion plan to address underlying factors driving migration from Central America. MASS UNEMPLOYMENTEven before the storms, Central American nations were reeling from economic crises brought on by the pandemic and mass unemployment led to a steady increase in migration north. Other migrants bypassed the storm shelters, where aid workers fear the overcrowded conditions could lead to a new spike in coronavirus cases, and hit the road immediately.

The U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) called on Bangladesh to uphold its commitment that relocation of Rohingya to the island will be voluntary, spokesman Babar Baloch told a U.N. briefing in Geneva. UNHCR stood ready to evaluate conditions on the island to ensure that it is a “safe and sustainable place for refugees to live”, if permitted by the government, he said.

BEIRUT (Reuters) - Life in Lebanon has become so difficult for Syrian refugee Ahmad, he says he recently contemplated suicide. His daughters sometimes go into the street to sell tissues to help keep the family fed. It’s a life of misery.”Nearly a decade since Syria’s war began, neighbouring Lebanon still hosts some 1 million registered Syrian refugees for whom life has only become more difficult since an economic crisis erupted last year. Poverty among Syrian refugees in Lebanon is soaring, reflecting deepening hardship among the entire population. Ahmad’s nephew, who once helped out with financial support, went back to Syria this year as he could no longer find work.

GENEVA (Reuters) - Nearly 100,000 Eritrean refugees in Ethiopia’s Tigray region will run out of food as early as next week if parties to the conflict do not allow humanitarian access, the U.N. refugee agency said on Friday. The UNHCR says 96,000 Eritrean refugees are living in four camps in Tigray, with some reported to have been in the vicinity of recent clashes. “What is needed is unhindered humanitarian access to reach them as soon as possible,” he added. Many of the Eritrean refugees in Ethiopia arrived more than a decade ago amid ongoing tensions between the two countries despite the end of a two-year border war between the neighbours. A final peace deal was only agreed in 2018 by Abiy, who won the Nobel peace prize for his achievement.

Slideshow ( 2 images )Aid agencies are racing to scale up the humanitarian response in remote areas of eastern Sudan, where more than 30,000 people fleeing the fighting have arrived in under two weeks.

Thousands of refugees have fled, some crowding into boats to cross a river to Sudan, overwhelming aid groups positioned on the other side. “Our serious concern is if we do not act quickly with the resources needed...this could unravel not only Ethiopia but also Sudan,” he told the same briefing.

ADDIS ABABA (Reuters) - Ethiopia said its troops were marching on the capital of the Tigray region on Tuesday after a deadline for rebel forces to surrender passed in a two-week conflict shaking the Horn of Africa and alarming the world. “The TPLF junta will soon be held accountable for destroying this infrastructure and for crimes it has committed so far.”There was no immediate TPLF comment on the accusations. Federal forces had also destroyed TPLF military bases in both areas and were now heading towards Mekelle, the statement said. After Amnesty International reported a massacre of scores of labourers, where it cited witnesses blaming TPLF forces, the United Nations human rights chief said war crimes may have been committed. Diplomats described a growing push for negotiations, but Ethiopia said it was simply explaining an internal conflict to outsiders.

Federal government forces loyal to Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed are making advances in the semi-autonomous northern Tigray region, which is currently controlled by the Tigray People's Liberation Front (TPLF). The TPLF led a coalition which ruled Ethiopia for almost three decades prior to Abiy taking office in 2018. On Friday, Human Rights Watch called on Tigray's regional authorities and the national government to protect civilians and property amid reports of mounting casualties. Economic implicationsThe prospect of a bloody and protracted conflict could dent Abiy's recent push to transform the country's economy. Reuters reported on Monday, citing military and diplomatic sources, that government forces had dropped bombs on the Tigrayan capital Mekelle.

(CNN) A full-scale humanitarian crisis is developing in the Horn of Africa as thousands of people flee ongoing violence in Ethiopia's Tigray region, the United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR) said Tuesday. An average of 4,000 women, men and children have crossed the border into eastern Sudan every day since November 10, the agency saidIn total, more than 27,000 people have now traveled into Sudan at three border locations, UNHCR spokesperson Babar Baloch said at a news conference in Geneva.
