Since 18 June, the Koro area (Mopti region) has been affected by violent clashes between two ethnic groups. According to the latest reports, at least 30 people have been killed. Several wounded were treated in local and regional healthcare centres. This remote area has already witnessed several clashes throughout this year, leading to the displacement of populations.
