Tens of thousands of Cameroonians who fled their country because of political turmoil are now living in Nigeria.  Nigerian authorities say more than 35,000 refugees have arrived in the country since 2016, but refugee advocates say the number is much higher, more than 70,000.  As the world takes note of Refugee Day on June 20th, Nigerian authorities say they will begin voluntary repatriation of some Cameroonian refugees.
