Continuing Conflicts That Create Refugees - May 2019

Deteriorated Situations: Mali, Cameroon, Somalia, Sudan, Benin, Sri Lanka, Venezuela, Yemen, Egypt, Libya,

Conflict Risk Alerts: Mali, Cameroon, Somalia, South Sudan, Benin, Venezuela, Yemen, Algeria, Libya

Global Overview: In April, war broke out in Libya, a failed opposition uprising in Venezuela increased fears of violent escalation, and over 250 people were killed in terror attacks in Sri Lanka. In Sudan, the end of President Bashir's almost 30-year rule gave way to a tense standoff between military chiefs and protest leaders. Now that Algeria's long-time ruler has resigned, the country runs the risk of violent confrontations between protesters and the military, while Egyptian President Sisi consolidated his authoritarian rule. Political tensions rose in Mali and Benin amid opposition protests. Fighting escalated in Yemen on multiple front lines, with risks of more clashes around Hodeida and in the south, and conflict could resume in South Sudan if President Kiir unilaterally forms a new government. In Somalia, security forces clashed with protesters and Al-Shabaab could step up attacks in Ramadan starting early May. In Cameroon, Boko Haram intensified attacks in the north, while violence between state forces and Anglophone separatists could spike around National Day on 20 May.
