The town of Phalodi in Rajasthan state in India experienced the highest temperature ever recorded in India: 51° C (123.8 ° F)  Different areas of India have experienced abnormally high temperatures over the last few months.  The heat is expected to last until the monsoons come sometime in mid-June.

Amnesty International has conducted a survey of citizens in a variety of countries about their attitudes toward refugees.   The chart below is a compilation of the results to the proposition:  “People should be able to take refuge in other countries to escape from war or persecution.”  The results of the survey are quite striking, indicating that ordinary citizens do not necessarily share the attitudes towards refugees of their governments.  There are wide variations among the countries surveyed, but, by and large, ordinary citizens believe they have responsibilities toward refugees.

A 2016 survey asked residents of 27,000 countries how closely they'd be willing to accept refugees.
