Somalia's IDP is above 1.5m

“The main reason for the increase of the overall number of displaced (from 1.3 million in the first quarter of 2009) is the renewed aggression in Mogadishu that displaced over a quarter of a million people since May 7th,” the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) said in a declaration.

On May 7, Somali insurgent groups joined forces and launch a deadly offensive against the UN-backed transition government in Mogadishu.

It said that large portion of the displaced include women and children, “who are victims of human rights infringement committed on a daily basis in complete impunity in Somalia”.
