Description : At a press conference in Geneva, International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) head of operations Pierre Kraehenbuehl said that the situation in Cote d'Ivoire now amounted to an internal armed conflict, causing thousands of casualties and widespread displacements of population. The ICRC head of operations announced that the organization was calling for an additional 20,5 million Swiss francs, 15 million for Côte d'Ivoire and 5,5 million for Liberia where over 110,000 refugees have sought a safe haven according to the UN. This budget extension will be dedicated to providing emergency relief and ensuring access to safe water and health care for displaced, residents and people deprived of their freedoom.
