Iraq, 2013: Every minute eight people flee their homes to escape conflict, persecution or natural disaster. Annually on 20 June, World Refugee Day draws attention to the struggles of over 43.7 million refugees and displaced people around the globe.

Of them, over 150,000 are now in Iraq – a threefold increase since November 2012.
