Briefing notes

Togo refugee numbers rise

24 May 2005

Refugees are still fleeing Togo and crossing into neighbouring Benin, but in Ghana the inflow has almost stopped, apart from one or two arrivals via informal crossing points. The total number of refugees in both countries is now 33,385 up from 31,964 on Friday. In Benin 18,241 refugees have been registered. On Monday 207 new arrivals were registered at the main border crossing point of Hilakondji and 173 in the capital of Cotonou.
