Pakistan tops list of displaced persons in 2009

A sad list for Pakistan to top:

Pakistan suffered the highest number of internally displaced people in 2009 due to the Taliban insurgency and Pakistan’s military response, a United Nations study showed on Monday.

The number of internally displaced people worldwide reached 27.1 million individuals in 2009, the highest number since records began in the mid 1990s, said the report.

Out of a total population of 170 million, some 3 million Pakistanis were newly displaced in 2009, the most in the world and three times more than second-placed Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

This is the real cost of the war in FATA. We have to end this war NOW!
