Le choléra frappe également les déplacés de Boko Haram

Le choléra continue de se propager dans l’extrême nord du Cameroun, depuis qu’il est arrivé en avril dernier par le Nigéria voisin. D’après le dernier bilan officiel diffusé par le médecin Rebecca Djao, responsable de la santé publique, 1500 cas détectés et environ 200 victimes ont été enregistrés.

La plupart des personnes contaminées sont des enfants de moins de cinq ans et des femmes, mais aussi des ressortissants nigérians qui ont fui le groupe armé Boko Haram. Une vaste campagne de sensibilisation sur les règles d’hygiène et sanitaires est en cours.

Boko Haram steps up Cameroon raids

Report
IRIN

YAOUNDE, 24 July 2014 (IRIN) - Nigerian radical Islamist group Boko Haram's free-wheeling ruthlessness is increasingly troubling the remote Far North Region of Cameroon, which has seen several attacks in recent months, with foreigners also abducted for ransom.

This month, heavily armed men suspected to be Boko Haram fighters attacked Bonderi village 5km from the border with Nigeria and stole a military vehicle, four motorbikes and weapons from the gendarmerie base there, government officials told IRIN.
