The United Nations says the number of people forced to flee their homes because of war or persecution is at the highest level ever recorded. More than half of the nearly sixteen million, who fled last year, were children. Most of the refugees were from Syria. The UN High Commission for Refugees said the international community seemed incapable of stopping conflicts.

联合国声称,因遭遇战争或者迫害而被迫逃离家园的人数升至了历史新高位。去年,在将近1600万名流离失所的难民当中,超过一半为儿童。大多数的这些难民来自叙利亚。联合国最高难民署表示国际社会似乎无力阻止冲突的发生。
