The United Nations refugee agency said on Friday that for the first time since the World War II era, the number of people forced from their homes worldwide has surged past 50 million, a rise of six million in just one year. Conflicts in Syria, South Sudan and the Central African Republic have driven up the number, but the figure is expected to rise even further as hundreds of thousands of people flee from their homes in Iraq. Analysts say that if refugees made up a country, it would be the 26th largest in the world.
