Uganda floods with refugees from South Sudan

Uganda floods with refugees from South Sudan | UgandaNuz | Scoop.it
Refugees queue at a World Food Programme (WFP) food distribution site at a refugee settlement on February 25, 2017 in Palorinya, Uganda. After registering their details families receive food including Maize Flour, Vegetable Oil, Beans and Salt. The continued flow of refugees from South Sudan, is putting pressure on the many humanitarian partners, and their capacity to cope with the crisis. The United Nations have said that more than 1.5 million asylum seekers have taken refuge in Uganda, since civil war erupted in South Sudan in December 2013, with 100,00 entering in 2017 so far. Uganda continues to see a flow of between 1000 to 4000 people crossing the border every day. The Bidibidi settlement, one of many across the country, is home to around 274,000 people making it the third largest refugee camp in the world. A famine has just been declared in South Sudan which is likely to lead to an increased flow of people seeking help into the North of the country. People fleeing recent clashes on the border of the Democratic Republic of Congo and Uganda between the M23 rebel group and the Uganda People's Defence Force (UPDF), has also led to a number of refugees entering into the South West of Uganda, though the numbers are unclear.

White House Staffers Leak News of Spicer’s ‘Phone Check’ Targeting Leaks

White House Staffers Leak News of Spicer’s ‘Phone Check’ Targeting Leaks | UgandaNuz | Scoop.it
Spicer, upset that information had leaked out of a previous meeting he had held with roughly a dozen members of his staff, ordered another meeting and had staff surrender their phones and other electronic devices when they arrived. The search — which applied to both personal and government-issued phones — was overseen by White House lawyers, and Spicer then warned staffers against using privacy-focused messaging apps like Signal and Confide, noting that doing so violates the Federal Records Act. He also, per Politico’s sources, “warned the group of more problems if news of the phone checks and the meeting about leaks was leaked to the media,” which it promptly was.
