République centrafricaine : des milliers de personnes réfugiées dans l’hôpital de Batangafo

Batangafo, au nord de la République centrafricaine (RCA), tente un retour à la normale après d'intenses combats entre la Séléka et les forces françaises Sangaris, début août. Les affrontements ont fait des dizaines de morts et de blessés et font à nouveau régner la terreur dans la région. Quelques 1 500 habitants se réfugient toutes les nuits à l'hôpital par crainte d'une recrudescence de violence alors qu'au moins 4 000 autres s’abritent dans le quartier général de la mission de maintien de la paix de l'Union africaine (MISCA).

10 dead in Boko Haram attacks in Nigeria: witnesses

08/18/2014 15:33 GMT

KANO, August 18, 2014 (AFP) - Suspected Boko Haram gunmen killed 10 people who had fled their homes to escape repeated attacks by the insurgents, after hunting them down in a nearby village, witnesses said on Monday.

Residents of Krenuwa village fled to nearby communities after a Boko Haram raid last month that left seven dead and saw the extremists raze a military camp, police station and several homes.

About a dozen militants stormed the villages of Durwa and Maforo in the Marte district on Sunday, where some of them were seeking refuge.
