UNHCR airlift of emergency aid arrives in Pakistan as number of displaced passes 500,000
UNHCR cargo airlift, from Dubai to Pakistan. / UNHCR photo / May 2009 UNHCR airlift of emergency aid arrives in Pakistan as number of displaced passes 500,000 ISLAMABAD, Pakistan, May 12 (UNHCR) – The number of registered, displaced people uprooted by the current conflict in north-west Pakistan surpassed half a million on Tuesday as a UNHCR-chartered cargo jet delivered 120 tonnes of additional relief supplies for immediate distribution to those fleeing the fighting. The aid plane arrived in Islamabad on Tuesday afternoon with 10,000 mosquito nets, 14,000 plastic sheets for emergency shelters, 1,500 plastic rolls to build walls and privacy screens in camps, and two portable warehouses from the refugee agency's stockpiles in Dubai. The supplies were loaded onto seven trucks and taken to UNHCR's warehouse in Peshawar, and then distributed to various sites hosting displaced people in North West Frontier Province. Minister for State and Frontier Regions Najamudiin Khan, who was at the airport when the aircraft landed, thanked UNHCR for the aid consignment and for its work in helping the needy. "We are making an appeal to the UN and to other countries to help us with our IDP (internally displaced people) crisis," he added. Pakistan's National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) facilitated the emergency flight, as well as the provision of an additional 10,000 tents to UNHCR, for the emergency operation. The airlifted consignment will bolster the thousands of relief supplies such as tents, kitchen sets, jerry cans, sleeping mats and blankets, either locally procured or from UNHCR's existing stockpiles in Pakistan, which UNHCR is currently distributing alongside non-government partners and local authorities, as part of a joint UN response. "UNHCR is responding as quickly as possible to meet the basic needs of the displaced people. But we need to support them morally, psychologically and materially and ensure they can feel the solidarity that is being extended to them. The speed of our response is critical," said Guenet Guebre-Christos, UNHCR's representative in Pakistan. As of late Tuesday, a total of 501,496 displaced people from the new influx had been formally registered by authorities, with UNHCR's help, since May 2. Of these new arrivals, 72,707 are staying in camps and 428,789 people are staying with relatives, friends or host communities – including locals who have opened their doors to receive people fleeing the fighting. People are being registered in camps and in 38 registration points that have been established by the Directorate of Social Welfare with UNHCR's help in Swabi, Mardan, Nowshera, Charsadda, Kohat and Peshawar. More are being set up daily. The Mardan, Sheikh Yasin, Sheikh Shahzad and Jalala camps are now full and people are being directed to other camps where there is room, such as Jalozai in Nowshera, or the soon to be opened Shah Mansoor site in Swabi. UNHCR site planners are assessing the suitability of land for additional camps, and working to improve conditions and capacity in existing ones. On Tuesday, UNHCR field teams were also assessing conditions in the hundreds of spontaneous settlements that have sprung up in the districts of Mardan and Swabi – in schools, colleges, flour mills, stadiums, parks, private land and other sites – to identify the most urgent needs. In Geneva, High Commissioner Antonio Guterres said the speed and scale of the crisis was posing huge challenges for the government and the humanitarian community. More resources were urgently needed and UNHCR was calling for international solidarity to help Pakistanis uprooted in the crisis. Guterres said Pakistanis in the north-west region had for decades been extremely generous to millions of Afghan refugees and now that they themselves were uprooted, they deserved international help. As part of a joint UN response, UNHCR is providing shelter and other relief supplies to the latest influx of displaced people from Swat, Buner and Lower Dir. UNHCR is also working with its local partner, the International Rescue Committee (IRC), assisting the local authorities to register people, and has set up reception centres on the main routes out of the conflict zones into the safer areas in Mardan and Swabi. These reception centres, run by our local partner the Sarhad Rural Support Programme, are providing information and transport to camps and other areas to those who need it. Food and water are also being provided by individuals and local organizations. By Ariane Rummery in Islamabad, Pakistan
UNHCR News Story: Number of Somalis displaced in current wave of violence nears 120,000

This latest exodus pushed the number of displaced from the capital past the 100,000-mark to 117,000 since street battles erupted on May 8. "UNHCR is gravely concerned about the violence and the fact that it is further aggravating an already desperate humanitarian situation on the ground," UNHCR spokesman William Spindler told journalists in Geneva on Tuesday. The fighting between government forces and the opposition Al-Shabaab and Hisb-ul-Islam groups in several north-west areas of Mogadishu left more than 200 people dead over the past month, mostly civilians, with hundreds of injured in local hospitals. "The manner in which civilians are being victimized by this conflict is unacceptable. Parties to the conflict in Mogadishu are fighting with no regard for the safety of civilians in clear violation of international humanitarian and human rights principles," Spindler said. "UNHCR is appealing to the belligerents to guarantee the safety and security of the civilian population." In Nairobi, UNHCR's Representative to Somalia Guillermo Bettocchi also urged the rival forces to respect the rights of civilians. "The suffering civilians are going through is unacceptable. All warring parties in this conflict should be reminded of their obligations under international humanitarian and human rights law to protect civilians, to refrain from indiscriminate attacks on civilians and to limit their attacks to military targets," he said. The majority of the displaced are women and children, many fleeing with very few belongings, and having to endure extremely difficult circumstances. Women are particularly vulnerable. There are reports of rape and sexual exploitation during their flight and in places of refuge. These risks are exacerbated by the limited humanitarian assistance available. A 21-year-old woman, carrying her baby in her arms after fleeing Mogadishu by bus, told staff from one of UNHCR's local partners that her husband had been killed in the latest fighting and she wanted to make her way across the Gulf of Aden to Yemen. "I didn't give money to the bus driver, but he used my body," she alleged, while adding: "I will never come back to Somalia." Reports received from local NGO partners supporting a hospital in Mogadishu's Dayniile neighbourhood indicate that of the 218 wounded people treated in that hospital, 81 were women and children under the age of 14, including a six-month old baby. Countless families have allegedly been separated due to the conflict. The events of May have worsened a pattern of indiscriminate violence that has seen at least 34 schools temporarily occupied by armed groups since the beginning of the year, and at least six schools raided or shelled in the last 12 months. Reports also indicate that people desperate to flee are stuck in their homes for days without food or water, no access to basic services, waiting for a lull in the fighting to escape the city. A hospital in the strategically important Yaaqshiid district of Mogadishu, fearing for the safety of its scarce medical staff, was forced to cease operations temporarily and thus limiting access to medical care for wounded civilians. Due to the latest escalation, UNHCR was forced to put on hold the scheduled distribution of life-saving aid in the vicinity of a location called Kilometre 13, on the south-eastern outskirts of the Somali capital. During this phase the UN refugee agency had hoped to provide humanitarian assistance to almost 30,000 people, but the distribution was halted due to fighting between opposition groups and government forces for the control of the main road from Mogadishu to the Afgooye district. UNHCR is leading a task force to coordinate the response and interventions of all humanitarian actors in this new emergency.

In this age of an open Internet, it is easy to forget that every American information industry, beginning with the telephone, has eventually been taken captive by some ruthless monopoly or cartel. With all our media now traveling a single network, an unprecedented potential is building for centralized control over what Americans see and hear. Could history repeat itself with the next industrial consolidation? Could the Internet—the entire flow of American information—come to be ruled by one corporate leviathan in possession of “the master switch”? That is the big question of Tim Wu’s pathbreaking book.
As Wu’s sweeping history shows, each of the new media of the twentieth century—radio, telephone, television, and film—was born free and open. Each invited unrestricted use and enterprising experiment until some would-be mogul battled his way to total domination. Here are stories of an uncommon will to power, the power over information: Adolph Zukor, who took a technology once used as commonly as YouTube is today and made it the exclusive prerogative of a kingdom called Hollywood . . . NBC’s founder, David Sarnoff, who, to save his broadcast empire from disruptive visionaries, bullied one inventor (of electronic television) into alcoholic despair and another (this one of FM radio, and his boyhood friend) into suicide . . . And foremost, Theodore Vail, founder of the Bell System, the greatest information empire of all time, and a capitalist whose faith in Soviet-style central planning set the course of every information industry thereafter.
Explaining how invention begets industry and industry begets empire—a progress often blessed by government, typically with stifling consequences for free expression and technical innovation alike—Wu identifies a time-honored pattern in the maneuvers of today’s great information powers: Apple, Google, and an eerily resurgent AT&T. A battle royal looms for the Internet’s future, and with almost every aspect of our lives now dependent on that network, this is one war we dare not tune out.
Part industrial expose, part meditation on what freedom requires in the information age, The Master Switch is a stirring illumination of a drama that has played out over decades in the shadows of our national life and now culminates with terrifying implications for our future.
