12 February 2016 (IRIN ), The crisis that erupted in Burundi in April 2015 following Pierre Nkurunziza’s decision to seek a controversial third term as president has claimed more than 400 lives and caused more than 230,000 people to flee the country, according to the UN.

Sri Lanka war crimes in the spotlight as UN rights chief visits
9 February 2016 (IRIN ), Sri Lanka's president is unlikely to cave in any time soon to pressure for international participation in a war crimes tribunal, as the United Nations rights chief urged today.

Turkey’s refugee smugglers adapt and prosper
8 February 2016 (IRIN ), Turkish and German leaders may be ramping up the rhetoric and hardening their resolve to crack down on the people smugglers pushing a steady stream of Syrians and others out into the Aegean, but the illicit trade is still booming and the criminal networks are finding new ways to avoid detection.

Turkey's hidden humanitarian crisis
3 February 2016 (IRIN ), Kurdish human rights organisations say fighting across southeastern Turkey has displaced 200,000 people in the last two months alone. Turkish authorities put the number at 93,000. Either way, it’s a mass displacement. There are no camps, little aid, and almost no international awareness of what’s actually going on.

29 January 2016 (IRIN ), It’s almost a given that African leaders meeting this weekend in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, will not override Burundi’s objections and endorse the deployment of a 5,000-strong intervention force to help end the violence in the troubled country.

The cost of America’s “secret war” in Laos
26 January 2016 (IRIN ), The United States may increase the $15 million a year it spends on dealing with the legacy of its “secret” bombing of Laos.
