UNHCR sier de nå har registrert 1,4 millioner flyktninger fra kampene i Swat-dalen i Pakistan. Bildet er tatt fra en leir bare 15 mil fra hovedstaden Islamabad.

The number of people displaced by fighting in Pakistan’s northwestern Swat valley has risen to more than 1.4 million, U.N. humanitarian chief John Holmes said on Monday.

«The situation is volatile and changing rapidly,» Holmes told reporters at the United Nations.

He said extra financial resources were urgently needed to deal with the situation and that the United Nations would soon launch an emergency appeal for hundreds of millions of dollars to cover the costs of the refugees over the next 12 months.
