NAIROBI, Aug. 24 (Xinhua) -- The UN refugee agency said Thursday it has repatriated some 70,516 Somali refugees from Kenya since the voluntary return exercise begun in December 2014.

The UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) said in its bi-weekly update released in Nairobi that a total of 68,697 individuals from Dadaab refugee camp in northeast Kenya were assisted in the framework of voluntary return to Somalia.

The UN refugee agency said some 29 Hombre Adidas Ultra Boost 3.0 Mystery Gris España ,383 refugees returned in 2017 alone, noting that currently there are 18,274 registered refugees willing to return to Somalia.

"During the Kenyan election, the Return Help Desks (RHDs) have recorded reduced number of refugees willing to return. Arrangement has been put in place during the election period to ensure continuation of voluntary return by air without stoppage," UNHCR said.

The UN agency expressed its readiness to receive refugees returning home by road, adding that security assessment on road safety between Dadaab and Dhobley will be carried out after the Kenyan election prior to resumption of the road movements.

More than 2 million Somalis have been displaced in one of the world's most protracted humanitarian crises that have now entered its third decade.

BERLIN Adidas Ultra Boost 3.0 MultiColor Hombre España , July 16 (Xinhua) -- Frankfurt's striker Celia Sasic retires from soccer with 27 years, the German international confirmed in a statement via the official DFB (German Soccer Association) homepage on Thursday.

"Football has accompanied me my whole life and it will be always a part of me. I was able to experience 11 unforgettable years in the women's Bundesliga and 10 and a half years with the German women's national team. That makes me proud. Nevertheless, I have now decided to break new ground and to retire from professional soccer," Sasic said.

The 27-year-old striker made her debut for Germany against Australia in 2005. She played 111 caps and scored 63 goals ever since. Sasic clinched the top scorer trophy recently at the FIFA Women's World Cup in Canada. However, Sasic squandered an awarded penalty at the semifinal allowing the United States to progress into the final following a 2-0 victory.

"I regret Celia's decision but I can also understand her. Soccer is not everything in life. There comes a time where you have to have different priorities. For us, this is a real loss because Celia is an important figure Hombre Negras Plata Adidas Ultra Boost 3.0 LTD España ," German women's team coach Silvia Neid said.

Sasic lifted the European Championships title in 2009 and 2013 with Germany and wrapped up the German Cup in 2014 and UEFA Champions League title in 2015 with Frankfurt.

"I'm looking forward to a lot of new things. I want to complete my study, pursue my career, raise a family and much more," Sasic added.
