Mauritania hosts over 2,000 urban refugees and asylumseekers and more than 50,000 Malian refugees in Mbera, a camp established in 2012 in the arid south-eastern region close to the Malian border.
Despite the conclusion of a peace agreement in 2015, large-scale returns of Malian refugees are not expected due to persistent violence in northern Mali. In January alone, 1,187 new arrivals were registered in Mbera.

Violence against children affects more than 1.7 billion children every year, in every community and every country. Children are being subjected to violence in their communities, schools and homes – the very places they should feel the most secure and safe. Violence is devastating for children, affecting their health, obstructing their education and diminishing their chances for a life free from poverty and discrimination. The impact of violence goes beyond the individual children, affecting families and communities, slowing economic development and eroding human and social capital.

UNE ATTAQUE ARMÉE VISANT UN CAMP DE DÉPLACÉS DÉJOUÉE
Le 4 février, des hommes armés ont tenté d'attaquer un site accueillant des personnes déplacées dans la ville d'Alindao, dans la préfecture de Basse-Kotto, au Sud-Est du pays.
Les forces de maintien de la paix de l'ONU ont repoussé l’attaque. Les assaillants sont soupçonnés d’avoir voulu prendre leur revanche suite aux combats intercommunautaires qui ont eu lieu dans la région récemment.
