    where over _._(anyone...?) million have been killed.

    I think war is not viewed as a "Disaster" by the U.N.

    Man-made events are also tragic, but the people in war-torn countries are not seen as 100% blameless as are the victims of natural disasters.

    Or course, if you view the floods or the fires in Russia as climate chaos phenomena, as I do, then nobody is truly blameless in these "natural" disasters.

    The figure is 5.5 million Congolese.
