Ukraine's wounded warriors
22 December 2015 (IRIN ), In addition to the 8,000 people who have lost their lives in the conflict in Ukraine, thousands more have come home with horrific injuries.

The Bulgarian route: Between a rock and a hard place
18 December 2015 (IRIN ), The migrants and refugees arriving in Dimitrovgrad, Serbia, have all opted for the land route through Turkey and Bulgaria rather than the more expensive route by boat to Greece.

But as the Turkish and Bulgarian border police step up controls, and numerous reports of police brutality emerge, it is an option that comes with its own risks.

Fuelled by corruption, South Sudan war enters third year
17 December 2015 (IRIN ), South Sudan is an oil-rich country with fertile soil and a wealth of untapped mineral riches. Pilfering money is easy for those who are so inclined, and the attraction of diverting revenues for personal benefit is a key reason why the young country has been mired in a deadly, destructive two-year conflict.

15 December 2015 (IRIN ), After the deadliest clashes in eight months of political unrest in Burundi, the need for talks to mediate the crisis over President Pierre Nkurunziza's controversial third term is greater than ever.

11 December 2015 (IRIN ), Once a very closed and guarded organisation, the International Committee of the Red Cross has in recent years begun to open up.
