Niamey/Dakar , 30 juin 2015 (IRIN) - En novembre dernier, des membres de Boko Haram sont arrivés chez Fanna Liman Mustafa, 25 ans, et ont incendié sa maison de Baga, dans le nord-est du Nigeria. Elle a décidé de fuir au Niger avec ses quatre enfants. Le destin a voulu qu'elle ait de la chance : les militants islamistes sont revenus au mois de janvier et ont massacré des centaines, voire des milliers de civils.

Humanitarian aid has been slow in arriving as it is difficult to localize displaced people, assess their needs and intervene in safe conditions.
