A group of migrants rescued from the Mediterranean in July by charity ship Aquarius have a new home in Fundao, a small Portuguese town badly hit by wildfires last year, the government said.

Fundao, about 260 km (162 miles) north of the capital Lisbon, has close to 30,000 inhabitants. In August 2017 a wildfire destroyed thousands of hectares in and around the town.

The group of 19 migrants from Eritrea, Nigeria, Yemen and Sudan had arrived in the town and would now go through an employment course, involving classes in Portuguese.

“The arrival of this group of migrants is a result of Portugal’s commitment to solidarity and European cooperation on migrants,” a government statement said.

Portugal on Tuesday joined with Spain, France and Germany in taking in migrants from Aquarius’ second mission, with Portugal agreeing to open its doors to 10 of the 58 migrants on board.

These outcomes can be hugely controversial because the size of the local population has important implications for the level of government funding they receive.

Kenya’s population is made up of many different ethnic groups, closely aligned to competing political parties.

The government has yet to release all the data on the ethnic composition of the country, but the changes in population in certain regions from this latest census have already caused arguments.

The outcome of such surveys can embolden or weaken claims made by groups for political representation or resources.

In one area of the north-east territories bordering Ethiopia and Somalia, the census indicates a decrease in the population, prompting local political leaders looking to retain funding for their provinces to question the veracity of the survey
