Libya

Conflict between the Libyan National Army (LNA) and forces of the UN-backed Government of National Accord (GNA) has entered its third week. Migrants and refugees have been particularly impacted by the violence. Some 3,600 of migrants and refugees in overcrowded detention centres close to the frontline are trapped without any access to assistance. It has been reported that LNA fighters have indiscriminately shot at detained migrants resulting in at least 10 people being seriously wounded and in urgent need of medical treatment. Armed groups running detention centres are reportedly recruiting migrants to support militia groups aligned with the GNA.

Sri Lanka

More than 350 people were killed in Sri Lanka following a series of coordinated bomb attacks that targeted churches and hotels across the country on 21 April. Most victims were members of Sri Lanka’s Christian minority who were attending Easter Sunday mass. The government has accused two radical Islamist groups based in Sri Lanka of being responsible for the attacks, possibly with support from the Islamic State. Muslims in Sri Lanka have reportedly been the target of retaliatory mob violence, and Muslim-owned houses and businesses have been destroyed. In Negombo, a town where close to 200 were killed, hundreds of Pakistani refugees have fled fearing an escalation of intercommunal tensions.

Yemen

In the last week fighting between Ansar Allah (Houthi) and forces loyal to the Hadi government in the southern governorate of Al Dhale has intensified. 85 people are reported to have been killed. Around 20,720 people have been displaced southward and resettled in at least 14 different sites and an estimated 22,200 people are thought to have fled north, most to community centres. The response for the newly displaced in Al Dhale is challenging due to the limited number of humanitarian actors able to access the area. The front-line continues to shift, roads are not secure and the only bridge to the area was destroyed on 22 April. Fighting in this area is also complicating the movement of aid around the country.
